The Great Book Swap

Indigenous Literacy Foundation

Saturday 25 August 2018

The Great Book Swap at the Canberra Writers Festival is a fantastic way to celebrate reading in our local community, and raise much-needed funds for remote Indigenous communities. The idea is to swap a favourite book in exchange for another, for a gold coin donation. Last year, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation raised over $190,000 from the Great Book Swap and this year their goal is to raise $300,000 to gift 30,000 new books to remote communities who have few to none. After all, how can you learn to read without books? Help us help them by making a donation to our Great Book Swap page and sharing it with your friends!
