Book Week 2022: Theme Announcement

Yes, I know it feels like we only just made it through Book Week 2021, but it’s time to talk about Book Week 2022. The theme has been announced. The illustrator has been announced. The official artwork has been teased. Let’s talk Book Week 2022.

Drum roll please….. The theme for Book Week 2022 is Dreaming With Eyes Open…

Dreaming with eyes open

Book Week 2022 will run from August 20-26.

Jasmine Seymour, illustrator of Baby Business, which won the CBCA Award for New Illustrator in 2020, will be designing the official artwork.

The artwork and the theme were announced by CBCA with a video.

The theme is beautiful and gives us a lot of scope to reflect our Indigenous culture. It also fits nicely with the ALIA National Simultaneous Storytime book, Family Tree, as it has similar Australian flora and fauna images.

If you’d love to start sharing ideas for the Book Week 2022 theme, why don’t you join our Aussies Book Week Facebook group or Pinterest page?

You can also check out my Pinterest board, Library – Book Week, which I will be updating to reflect the 2022 theme.
