Book Week 2020 – Useful Links

The theme for Book Week 2020 is – Curious Creatures, Wild Minds. Due to COVID-19, the usual date of late August has been changed. Book Week will be celebrated from the 17th to the 23rd of October.

When pulling together a plan for Book Week, it can be a little overwhelming, so I am sharing a few helpful links I’ve come across.

Official Updates

The official Book Week details and updates can be found on the CBCA website. They also share social media images and other free resources. You can also buy official merchandise from the CBCA Store or your state CBCA.

The official artwork for Book Week 2020 has been designed by 2018 CBCA Picture Book of the Year winner Gwyn Perkins. As the author/illustrator of A Walk in the Bush, I think this is the perfect match for theme.
