About the Book - Merimbula March 2017


You are a book lover. You may be an avid reader, or an author. An editor, or a bookseller.

About the Book is a festival celebrating all aspects of the book embracing all books, old and new, in whatever form they take.

About the Book is about:

– those who author, design and publish them

– those who sell, deal, and distribute them

– those who read, collect and repurpose them

About the Book embraces any style and form of the book: graphic, comic, picture, text, fold out, grimoires or whatever manifestation the book happens to take, in both traditional and new media, embracing and celebrating what has happened in the past, while anticipating the future.

Our first event is planned for March 2017 in Merimbula, on the far south coast of NSW. There is a Contact form to register your interest and About the Book has a website and Facebook page.

COMMENTS : Due to the risks associated with comments from unidentified contributors that expose The Beagle to possible legal actions under the NSW Defamation Act 2005 No 77 anonymous or Nom de Plume comments will not be available until an alternate system of author verification can be investigated and hopefully installed.

Those who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a  shame to see your comment deleted)

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.

If you need anonymity email us via our normal or encrypted email accounts


Please note that if you are looking for a previous comment that is no longer visible please contact us.
