Finalists in 2012 Queensland Reconciliation Awards

More than a ‘book club’ - we celebrated our 10th Anniversary in August 2014.

  •   Our group has no political or religious affiliations and we come from a variety of backgrounds and ages.
  •    We seek to expand our knowledge and understanding of current issues impacting on Australia's First            Peoples by reading and discussing works in an informal, friendly setting.
  • We meet at the Brisbane City Council's BRISBANE SQUARE LIBRARY 266 George Street (at the top end of  the CBD) on Sunday mornings, from 10.30 – 12.30, at approximately six weekly intervals. The room/s set aside for Reading for Reconciliation will be clearly marked. NEW ‘READERS’ ARE ALWAYS WELCOME.
  • Members take turns in ‘leading’ discussion of a particular title and each ‘leader’ is expected to provide some extra background or context, focus the discussion, etc.  All titles chosen are available through the Brisbane City Council Library service. A big “Thank you” to BCC for invaluable support.
