YA authors to run book club on a train

Contributors to the #LoveOzYA anthology Begin, End, Begin (HarperCollins) will be running a book club discussion on a Melbourne train on 14 September as part of Australian Reading Hour.

Authors including Danielle Binks, Ellie Marney, Lili Wilkinson, Melissa Keil and Amie Kaufman will meet at 6.45pm at Flinders Street railway station and will travel to the end of the Glen Waverley line and back. They are encouraging readers to join them on the train to ‘discuss the #LoveOzYA movement, writing short-stories and just how swell Aussie youth-lit is’.

The event is being hosted by Books on the Rail and promoted by Readings.

As previously reported by Books+Publishing, Australian Reading Hour is a new cross-industry campaign that promotes the idea of ‘picking up a book and reading for an hour’.
