Between November 2011 and January 2012, more than 16,200 thousand Australians voted at their local libraries and on the ABC website for the book to represent their state or territory during the National Year of Reading 2012.
Together these 8 books form the "Our Story" collection and paint a picture of the Australian people and the land we live in. The winning titles were announced at the official launch of the National Year of Reading 2012 in Canberra.
All the Western Australian titles are held by Mandurah Libraries and we'll be getting copies of all the Our Story titles soon. (To check the library catalogue and reserve your copy, click here.)
