High Country Book Club

THE HIGH COUNTRY Book Club meets monthly at The Makers Shed, Glen Innes, on the third Saturday from 10am-12pm.

If you cannot join us, or live a long way from Glen Innes, you can still participate via our Facebook group! We have members all over the world.

Each month, one title by an independent author will be selected. These books are available to buy from The Makers Shed and online book retailers.

So, what is an independently-published book?

Newsflash! Not every great story gets to you via a major publishing house!

An independently-published book is a title published by a small press, or an individual, without the support of a massive corporation. There are great indie books out there, and The Makers Shed is stocking a fantastic list of indie authors for your reading pleasure (and we’re always seeking more).

But that’s not all…

  • The Makers Shed manages author events as part of our High Country Handmade Showcase. Come along and meet writers!
  • We also manage the annual High Country Indie Book Award, one of only a few prizes for independently-published books in the world, judged annually by the readers of The High Country Book Club. That’s right… as a High Country Book Club member, you get you have your say on which of our annual finalists wins an award!
  • And watch out for the annual High Country Writers Festival at The Shed in December, at which the winner of the High Country Indie Book Award will be announced.
