Love Your Bookshop Day

Bookshops across Australia are throwing a party and you're invited!

Come and celebrate everything we love about bookshops. We’re proud of our knowledgeable and helpful staff, our carefully curated range of books, and of being part of the Art Gallery of New South Wales community.

Join us for staff dress-ups and story time for kids. Buy a book or two and support your local bookshop. Every purchase supports the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

Win a Sonos Play 5 speaker and a selection of fabulous books valued at over $1000!

To enter, come in to store on Love Your Bookshop Day, buy a book or two* and write down the opening sentence of that novel you’ve been dreaming of writing. The best sentence wins the prize!

The competition winner will be notified by the 16th August 2019.
