Calling all Bookworms! Lifeline Newcastle & Hunter's annual Bookfest will be held at the Broadmeadow Basketball Stadium on 21 and 22 September.
There will be thousands of books on offer with a wide range of fiction and non-fiction. Entry is by gold coin donation and you can pay for your purchases with cash, credit card (MasterCard or Visa) or EFTPOS.
Most of the books will be priced between three and four dollars on the Saturday, with reductions on the Sunday. In addition there will be a huge section of kids' books priced from 50c.
All proceeds from the Bookfest will support Lifeline's suicide prevention and crisis support services.
Every day, Lifeline receives 1,250 calls from Australians in need of support. Funds raised through Bookfest and other such events help them to continue to support the community and people experiencing difficulty through accessible and effective counselling, education and referral services.
