See ABIA writers at the Festival

The Australian Book Industry Awards are always a highlight of the year for book lovers as the entire publishing and bookselling community join together to celebrate the year's successes. In 2024, we're thrilled to have so many shortlistees and winners included in the Festival. If the ABIAs piqued your interest and you want to hear more, check out these events with some of the writers from across the 14 award categories. Take note, though, many events are sold out or are down to last tickets!

Yumi Stynes and Dr Melissa Kang's Welcome to Sex won this category amongst a shortlist including the Pride and Prejudice retelling Stuck Up & Stupid by mother-daughter dream team Kate and Angourie Rice and the murder mystery Eleanor Jones is Not a Murderer by Amy Doak. Our All-Day YA has been incredibly popular this year so these events have all sold out but check out the rest of the young adult program!

Congratulations to all shortlisted and winning writers! Onwards to another great year in the Australian book industry!
