Hall of Writers

What is it?

The Hall of Writers is a book room filled with authors and publishers - including an Alley of Children’s Books - open to schools and the public to visit, chat to the authors, attend book launches, listen to author conversations and purchase any books they fall in love with.

In addition to books from the Murder She Wrote panellists, the Hall will include 40 authors, publishers and specialty stalls from across Tasmania and the rest of Australia - offering crime fiction, historical fiction, romance, fantasy, non-fiction, memoir and children’s books - literary merchandise, Libraries Tasmania, 26Ten and TasWriters. The list of stallholders is below.

More information on each of our stallholders and their featured books will be revealed over coming weeks.
