At the end of 2002, a group of like-minded individuals met to discuss how reading and literature could be promoted in South Australia. The outcome, The Big Book Club, was launched in April 2003.
The Big Book club is open to everyone! The author of each month's selected book visits South Australia, not just Adelaide, and travels to various regional areas to meet their readers. The 'club' brings people together.
Each month, The Advertiser Little Big Book Club will recommend a book or series of books for each age bracket:
Pre talkers: 0 - 2 years
Talkers: 2 & 3 years
Pre readers: 4 & 5 years
