What an amazing 2 days we had at our 2018 Celebrate Reading National Conference, held here at The Literature Centre.  Thanks to all delegates, presenters, volunteers, staff and board members who shared in such a richly rewarding, inspiring and fun experience.  We also wish to thank key sponsors of our Conference, The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund who will again be supporting us.
