On The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - PIAF's One-Book 2007

Every year the UWA Perth International Arts Festival runs a ‘One Book’ project; inviting people throughout WA to celebrate the written word by reading, sharing and discussing one book. In 2007 the One Book is Marcus Zusak’s novel The Book Thief, a book which explores the overarching theme of the festival, ‘The Human Family’.  The New Critic invited three young critics to review The Book Thief in January this year as an introduction to the text. Further information about One Book events can be found here: PIAF One Book events
