ACT Local Author Showcase  The Point by Marion Halligan


The Local Author Showcase at Civic Library reflects the ACT’s vibrant, active and diverse writing and publishing scene. It contains copies of recent books by local authors.  All books may be borrowed.

Books stay in the Local Author Showcase for two years from date of publication.  After two years, the books are added to the ACT Heritage Library for preservation or placed in the general lending collection of Libraries ACT.

Browse the Local Author Showcase or click on an author's name to see which of their books are available.

We are constantly adding to the collection and welcome suggestions of authors and titles.

For more information about some of Canberra's authors, visit the ACT Writers Showcase website.
