Visit us today and support Indigenous Literacy Day
Today is Indigenous Literacy Day, and we’re proud to be a participating bookshop in 2012, donating 10% of all sales on the day to the Indigenous Literary Foundation.
Each year, the Indigenous Literary Foundation raises crucial funds to help improve the lives and opportunities of indigenous children living in remote and isolated regions. This is achieved by providing books and literacy resources to communities and raising broader awareness.
‘One in five children living in a remote community cannot read or write to the basic minimum level.’ (Suzy Wilson, ILF Founder)
Indigenous Literacy Day is the ILF’s main fundraising campaign and we’re proud to be involved again this year by donating 10% of all sales for the day to the ILF.
There are some great books with indigenous themes out at the moment including the new issue of the McSweeney’s Journal which includes a special section of indigenous Australian fiction.
Or perhaps come pick up a book written by one of the ILF’s team of dedicated volunteer ambassadors including Geraldine Brooks, Kate Grenville, Samuel Wagan-Watson, and more.
Show your support in-store today, or make an online donation directly to the ILF.
