This Saturday is National Bookshop Day! Hooray!
Join us to celebrate bookshops in your community. We're planning some fun activities for the kids - they can come in and make a bookmark with their favourite book character on it. There will be stickers and textas to help decorate them - that's the bookmarks, not the children! Local children's authors Meg McKinlay and James Foley will be around to read stories to inspire them between 11.00am and 2.00pm. Why not use it as an opportunity to dress in their Book Week costumes, that would be great! Jane and Sarah will be in costume too, and there will be plenty of helium filled "up balloons" (that's what we're told they're called!). We have not forgotten about the grownups either - adults making a purchase will receive a free copy of SaveOzStories, a collection of writing from some of our most esteemed authors, on the importance of books and writing. Contributors include Tim Winton, Richard Flanagan, Jackie French, David Malouf, Geraldine Brooks, plus many more. We look forward to seeing you to celebrate our special day! #lovemybookshop #nationalbookshopday2016
