It’s a good day when you learn something new. Tonight at Riverbend Books in Brisbane, I learned what the good people in Australia’s book industry are doing to address the crisis in indigenous literacy.

Through the Indigenous Literacy Project,  they are raising money to put books in the hands of Aboriginal children in 140 communities around Australia.

If you would like to help, put this date in your calendar, Wednesday 2 September, Indigenous Literacy Day.  Then click on this link Indigenous Literacy Project : How Individuals Can Get Involved. You’ll see how easy it is to help books change people’s lives.
