Support Lifeline to bring hope to struggling Australians
Find your next favourite page-turner from a wide range of secondhand and pre-loved books, pick up a gift for Christmas and support community services at this year's Lifeline Book and Gift Fair.
Whether it's crime, drama, or romance or non-fiction titles that you are looking for, then this book lover's bliss is likely to have it. All books will be individually priced on the inside cover, or $2.50 if there is no price tag. Magazines are 2 for $1. But that's not all! There's also records, DVDs, CDs, puzzles and games.
If you have been to the Lifeline Bookfest in the past, you will be pleased to know that the Fair has expanded. The Fair will now include brand new gifts. Check out the homewares, garden and outdoor decor, candles and diffusers and more. So I guess that means there is so much more to explore while at the same time knowing you will be helping Lifeline provide services to those in need.
Funds raised from the Book and Gift Fair go towards Suicide Prevention Services in Queensland. Lifeline is a national charity providing all Australians experiencing a personal crisis with access to 24-hour crisis support (including its telephone services) and suicide prevention.
Sadly, nine Australians die every day by suicide. 75% of those who take their own life are male.
So, to add to your summer reading and support Lineline to deliver its life-changing services, head to the Book and Gift Fair. The Fair will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from 23 to 31 October 2021.
The Fair is open from 7: 30 am to 6 pm on the opening day. All other days, 8:30 am to 6 pm.
To find the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, just head across the river to Merivale Street, South Brisbane - a simple 2 kilometres from the Central Business District.
