Find your next favourite read at this year's Bookfest at St Paul's Anglican Church at Ashgrove.
This annual event returns to St Paul's over two days from 8 to 9 October 2021.
How does it work? Well, the parishioners studiously collect a range of books throughout the year to sell at the special Bookfest event. Along with books, you will also find a selection of crafts, plants and food.

St Paul's Anglican Church is located on the corner of Jubilee Terrace and Waterworks Road, Ashgrove. It has been a longstanding feature of the area, having been dedicated by Archbishop Hale on 15 June 1952. The current building is the second church to be built on the site, replacing the original timber one.
It has been designed by architects Cross and Bain and has some unusual features, including heavily arched roof timbering and a columbarium outside the sanctuary.
Support the continued work of the church and the community by visiting this year's Bookfest. Ashgrove is an inner-west suburb, located 5 kilometres from the Brisbane Central Business District.
