school visits

Our school program began in 2018 with a visit by local author A.L. Tait to Nowra East Public School.


In 2019, the Shoalhaven Readers’ & Writers’ Festival is sponsoring author visits to four local schools as part of our ongoing commitment to bringing the joy of books, reading and writing to the young members of our local community.

With your help, we can increase the number of schools authors visit each year! To attend our movie fundraiser at THE ROXY, Friday 26th July please click through for more information
