New Zealand Book Month is a non-profit initiative promoting books and reading – and as a result, literacy – in New Zealand.
One month each year we celebrate books and encourage all Kiwis to get involved. The next New Zealand Book Month is planned for August 2014.
The clear goal of New Zealand Book Month is to form a North to South community of readers. Kiwis passionate about books, determined to share them with each other and spread the word. Telling and retelling stories, and recommending new books to read. From friend to neighbour, school bus to sporting field, workplace to playground.
New Zealand Book Month works alongside a wide range of organisations fundamental to books and reading in New Zealand. Publishers, booksellers, libraries, schools and activists provide the necessary support to make New Zealand Book Month a success.
