One Book, One Community

Have you seen a copy of Scrublands whilst picking up your morning coffee or waiting at the doctor’s surgery?

One-hundred and fifty copies of Chris Hammer’s new thriller have been distributed to venues throughout the Region as part of the Library’s new project - One Book One Community.

If you find a stickered copy of the book (as pictured) take it home and join others in the community as they also read the novel. When you’ve finished, pass it on to a friend, return it to the location you found it, drop it off at the nearest library branch, or deposit it into a street library.

Scrublands is set in a fictional Riverina town at the height of a devastating drought, and is one of the most powerful, compelling and original crime novels to be written in Australia.

One Book One Community is proudly sponsored by Mid-Western Regional Council in partnership with Mudgee Readers' Festival.
