Selected bookshops along with their publishing partners will celebrate and thank their customers by giving away over 25,000 non-fiction, fiction and children’s books from local and international authors.

The day kicks of at 10am with William McInnes, one of Australia’s best loved authors and actors, announcing the winner of the ‘Australia’s Favourite Bookshop’ competition at his local bookshop, The Sun Bookshop in Yarraville Vic.
