Avid readers need to look no further to find their next burst of creative spark, with Geraldton Regional Library releasing the dates for Big Sky Readers and Writers Festival 2022.

Set to be held from Thursday 29 September until Sunday 2 October, this year’s line-up features a ‘kaleidoscope’ of talent from across the state.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn was thrilled to see it back for another year.

“This long running staple on the Geraldton events calendar continues to bring exceptional experiences to local venues throughout the region,” he said.

“Big Sky is a must-see for literature lovers everywhere and I applaud everyone involved for organising another ripper year.

“The full programme and tickets will be released very soon, so keep an eye on the Library’s social media so you don’t miss out!”

The 2022 line-up features Geraldton born author Holden Sheppard, whose debut novel Invisible Boys won several accolades, including the WA Premier’s Prize for an Emerging Writer in 2019. His second novel, titled The Brink will be published in August.

Other writers making an appearance include Amanda Bridgeman, Emily Brugman, Melody Dia, Brooke Dunnell, Dr Kate Forsyth and many more.

A full list of guests and moderators can be viewed on the Geraldton Regional Library’s website.

Funding for the Festival has been provided thanks to Lara Dalton MLA, Sandra Carr MLC and Darren West MLC; and the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, along with support from the Geraldton Universities Centre, local businesses and community groups.
