Travel Bag of Books finds a good home
Thiel Partners accountant Jonathan Sawyer (pictured holding Darryl Greer’s thrilling masterpiece, The Election) was the happy winner of a GCWA Travel Bag of Books at the recent 2011 Supporting Our Sisters – S.O.S. Race Day Breast Cancer Fundraiser held at the Gold Coast Turf Club.
This was the second time Gold Coast Writers’ Association member authors and friends had generously donated books for inclusion in a Travel Bag of Books for charity, the first occasion being the 2009 Bruce Lynton Charity Ball.
Included in the latest Travel Bag of Books were works authored by (alphabetically): Darryl Greer, The Election; George Lewis, Birds of Currumbin Estuary; John Millett, Circles of Love; Jill Smith, Dual Visions; Southern Short Story Group, Love, Lies, Laughter; The Ten Penners, Fan-tas-tic-al Tales and Robert Young, Alec the Aeroplane, with a past GCWA guest speaker, Katherine Howell, kindly donating Violent Exposure. It should be noted that Jill Smith, and The Ten Penners, also donated second copies of their books for use as individual raffle prizes on the day.
Sincere thanks to all who took part.
