David Bowie told Vanity Fair that reading was his idea of perfect happiness. In 2013 he wrote a list of his 100 favourite books.
Bowie Bookathon is a commemoration and sharing of David Bowie’s taste in literature. To celebrate his ultimate booklist and the legendary man himself, we have set ourselves the challenge of reading as many of Bowie’s favourite reads as possible. This project is conducted in partnership with the Goldfields Library Corporation.

Bowie Bookathon participants are encouraged to dress up in Bowie-inspired clothing and make up, and come to the Castlemaine Library on Saturday 18 March between 10.30am and 12.30pm to be filmed by Trouble Magazine. The resulting footag will be screened on Saturday 25 March at the Castlemaine Library.
Bowie Bookathon is presented in partnership with the Goldfields Library Corporation.
