THE GOLDEN FEATHER HUNT

Each year, libraries across Western Australia are invited to take part in our annual Golden Feather Hunt. Thousands of feather bookmarks are tucked inside library books from March to May and the challenge is to find one! Hidden inside some very special books, at a few mystery libraries, are extra precious feathers.

Whoever finds a rare and special Golden Feather wins a fabulous prize, including a VIP pass to the  Scribblers Festival and an iPad. Silver Feather finders will also win some literary prizes, and if you find a plain feather make sure you decorate it and share it on social media for the chance to win a spot prize.

Librarians can register for the Golden Feather Hunt 2020 here.
YA Curator

THE YA COLLECTIVE

In 2019 we were very excited to launch a brand new day for young adults, The YA Collective. Fans of YA literature were invited to join us for a series of sessions with some of the hottest YA writers in Perth for Scribblers Festival.

The program was curated by our teen curators, Oscar, Summer, Eva and Jacki, and featured writers including AJ Betts, Dhonielle Clayton, Neal Shusterman, Lynette Noni, Renee Watson, Celine Kiernan, and Meg McKinlay.

Applications for the 2020 YA Collective curator program will be open in October 2019. To learn more about our curators experiences at this year's festival visit our blog page.
