SUPPORT LOCAL

The Coalition for Books is a collaborative organisation that aims to make a tangible difference in the literary landscape of Aotearoa, by rolling out strategic initiatives that will engage more audiences with a diverse range of New Zealand books and authors. The Coalition for Books will complement the work of existing organisations by identifying gaps in activities and developing initiatives that serve authors, publishers, booksellers and festivals. Through strategic activity and by mobilising the literary sector, we will enhance the visibility, sales and overall opportunities for New Zealand books and their writers.
The Coalition for Books was established in 2019. Its founding members include Booksellers New Zealand, the New Zealand Society of Authors, the Publishers Association of New Zealand, the New Zealand Book Awards Trust, the Michael King Writers Centre, the Academy of New Zealand Literature, and the Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa. 
The Coalition for Books is a dynamic, collaborative organisation, tasked with delivering strategic initiatives with the aims of reaching and engaging more audiences with a diverse range of New Zealand books and authors, and enhancing the visibility and sales of New Zealand Books.
The Coalition for Books will complement the work of existing organisations in this field, by taking a strategic approach, identifying gaps in activity, and mobilising the literary sector to take collaborative action on initiatives that serve authors, publishers, booksellers and festivals. 
Together, we can have a significant positive impact on the literary landscape of Aotearoa.
