Brisbane Authors Collection

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version


Pictured L to R: Albert Duro, Tony Press, Kathy Wall, and Ray Miller.

Did you know there are published authors in town, some maybe living right down the street from you? From the former Editor of the Brisbane Bee, to an author of a collection of short stories, to a children's book author, to a college-level textbook author, the group above make up just a few in-town authors whose works have been generously donated to the Brisbane Authors Collection. If you have a piece of printed work that you would like to donate to the Collection, which will be housed in the new Brisbane Library's History Room, please bring a copy of it to City Hall, to Albert Duro's attention. Albert is also the City's IT Manager, and will see to it that your signature is placed on the sticker found inside the front cover and that your work is properly chronicled as being part of the Collection. On the table are pieces that were recently donated. Add yours today for the Brisbane Community to enjoy once the new Library opens in the Fall of 2019.

Corrections:

Front page - Anja Miller completed her second term on the Brisbane City Council in 1978, as opposed to 1974, which was the year she was invited to visit Brisbane, QLD as Mayor.

Page 3 - Coastal Cleanup Day is on Saturday, 9/15, not 9/18 as seen in the text of the article.
