SMITH FAMILY’S CHRISTMAS APPEAL TO HELP 10,000 YOUNG AUSTRALIANS
Fullers Bookshop, in conjunction with RACT, are proud to support The Smith Family in their excellent work this Christmas. We are looking forward to helping the recipients of Fullers vouchers choose their books!
The Smith Family is calling on the public to dig deep for its 2013 Christmas Appeal! To help 10,000 vulnerable Australian children and young people get the education they deserve, DONATE NOW!
This year’s appeal aims to raise $4 million nationally which will go towards providing learning support and mentoring programs to 10,000 disadvantaged children and young people.
There's a bookly blockbusting Spring and Summer descending on us (like). Flanagan, Tsiolkas, Winton - the boys are back, and they're angry – three heavy weights of Australian writing tackle, amongst everything else, the contemporary Australian male condition. And the ladies? Big big novels from Donna Tartt and Elizabeth Gilbert (forget any notion of Eat Pray Love this woman writes terrific fiction too) and Eleanor Catton's enormous Booker Prize shortlisted Luminaries.
Here is a picy of B1 and B2 congratulating Clive on winning ABC Centre of the Year for the whole of Australia – and a BIG congratulations to Ruth who manages the centre!!!!!
Break out the bubbly – we are alive and kickin’ in Tassie!!!!!!
