Russell Books is passionate about our culturally rich, talented, and unique community. We are an active part of the literary and cultural sphere of the city, and events make up a very special aspect of what we do. We host events and author readings and provide book fairs to many schools in Victoria. Our events welcome authors and artists to partner with local businesses, creating a diverse and collaborative environment for our community. 

We post all upcoming events in our e-newsletter, on our Facebook and Instagram feeds. Recent and upcoming events include: 

Planet Earth Poetry on Friday Evenings

Kid’s Sunday Story Time every Sunday
