CBCA WA Book Discussion Group 2024

27 March @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

ID: CBCA WA logo

An enthusiastic group of readers meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month to discuss a set book by an Australian author.

Books chosen for discussion are generally YA titles although the occasional book for Younger Readers is included. In the past a book by an overseas author has also made the list for discussion.

There are several special events throughout the year. Guest authors are invited to talk about recent publications and, following the announcement of the Book of the Year Awards Shortlist, the group meets to review all the shortlisted titles.

​Everyone is welcome to attend the Book Discussion Group meetings to improve their knowledge of Australian young adult and children’s literature.

​The books under discussion for 2024 are:

Wednesday 28 February, 6.30 pm: Salt River Road by Molly Schmidt will be discussed following a light meal at a private residence in Peppermint Grove.

Wednesday 27 March, 6.30 pm: Borderland by Graham Akhurst will be discussed following a light meal at a private residence in Peppermint Grove.

Wednesday 22 May, 6.30 pm: Wrong Answers Only by Tobias Madden will be discussed following a light meal at a private residence in Peppermint Grove.

Wednesday 26 June, 6.30 pm: Mouth of the Wolf by Erin Gough (published on 1 May) will be discussed following a light meal at a private residence in Peppermint Grove.
