About

Hamilton Book Month in August 2022 celebrates NZ authors and their writing, with 15 fiction and nonfiction events covering different genres. Readers from the Waikato and beyond are invited to meet authors and illustrators, listen to them discuss their work, and ask questions. With activities and events for all ages, all month, this is a local celebration you won't want to miss.  

We are passionate about providing no and low cost events and are extremely thankful to our funders Creative New Zealand, Hamilton City Council and Trust Waikato. 

We'd love to hear your comments and ideas. You can use the CONTACT US form on our website and subscribe to our email newsletter by filling in your details below.
