Event: Reading for Social Peace


Wilkins Farago Publishers are delighted to announce the launch of their Reading for Social Peace Project.

Teaming up with Yarra Plenty Regional Library, the project encourages kids to read with a questioning and open mind, and to use their reading to stimulate thought and discussion about social peace.
What’s social peace? It’s peace within our families, our friends, our communities, towns, cities or country. It means absence of conflict but it can also mean living better together.


Reading for Social Peace has its own wiki space page where you can find out about the first four books chosen for the project:
  • The Bear with the Sword by Davide Cali and Gianluca Foli
  • The Red Piano by Andr√© Leblanc and Barroux
  • The Enemy by Davide Cali and Serge Bloch
  • Empty Fridge by Gaetan Doremus (to be published in August)
There’s also a space for kids to post their own creations.

This is not just a project for those within the area serviced by Yarra Plenty Regional Library. Libraries and schools across Australia—or indeed around the world—are more than welcome to get involved now. All you need to do get started is pick up one of the four books above and get reading!

Reading for Social Peace is a National Year of Reading project.
