Join us!

For the first time, limited tickets are available for the general public to attend this event for $55 (not including catering)

Celebrate the joy of making books at The Australian Book Industry Awards (ABIA) on Wednesday 28 April 2021 at Carriageworks, in association with the Sydney Writers’ Festival.

We’ll be joined by Cate Blanchett via live video to present the Book of the Year Award.

The star-studded event is again hosted by Casey Bennetto and features many of Australia’s most popular established and emerging authors (and some very special guests!)

Whether you join us in person or online, we look forward to saluting the best books of 2020 with you.
