Fullers Bookshop is Tasmania’s leading independent bookshop — wholly Tasmanian owned and operated since the early 1920s.
Saturday, August 9th is National Bookshop Day! Join us on the Reading Couch... spend part of your Saturday on the couch at Fullers... read aloud to your favourite ear... or be read to from your favourite book... 5 and 10 minute spots from 11 to 2:30pm on the day... local authors popping up (or out from behind bookshelves)... Suzy Cooper in attendance to hold your hand...
Send us a message to reserve a specific time... or wander in and try your luck.
Come and celebrate National Bookshop Day with us. Bring the kids. Bring your sweetie so you can hold their hand on the couch while someone reads to you. Awwwww.
The Wheeler Centre will be presenting Bob Brown On Optimism on Wednesday 6 August at the Theatre Royal.

Our lovely friends at 40° South, in partnership with the Tasmanian Association for the Teaching of English, have set their sights on the younger generation to unearth some fresh new writing talent. The Young Tasmanian Writers' Prize, a short story competition for Tassie students in grades 7 to 12, was held for the first time this year, attracting 99 entries from 29 schools around the state.
Entries will be judged by some of our favourite Tasmanian writers (think Lian Tanner, Kate Gordon...) with the winners to be announced in July. Make sure to get your hands on a copy of the September edition of Tasmania 40°South magazine to read the winning stories!
The Peasant Prince
Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra
6pm Start - Friday 6th June
Federation Concert Hall
Best-selling children’s book The Peasant Prince comes to life with music, storytelling and big-screen projections. Li Cunxin’s inspirational tale – based upon his autobiography, Mao’s Last Dancer– traces the journey of a young boy from rural China who, against all odds, becomes one of the most famous dancers in the world.
The prize is offering a guaranteed publishing contract to the winner of the competition, and the opportunity to work with FMP's skilled editors and designers to create a children’s picture book, board book or novelty book to be published in 2015/2106.
