RWA Flooded Communities Book Appeal

Romance Writers of Australia is holding a Book Appeal to assist flooded communities from the Qld floods.
RWA Flooded Communities Book Appeal

We’ve all seen the devastation the recent Queensland floods have wrought and have wondered how we can help. We know that for many affected families, books will not be high on their priorities list for some time to come.


We also know how valuable books can be in providing time out when reality gets tough.


With the aid of some wonderful volunteers, we’ve put together a Romance Writers of Australia Flooded Communities Book Appeal.

What we need?

FICTION BOOKS! Romance books, children’s books, young adult books, genre books, whatever – either new or in sparkling condition.

Please send them to:

RWA Flooded Communities Book Appeal

PO Box 1717

Noosaville Post Office

Noosaville BC

Queensland 4566

When to send them?

Now! And any time over the next few months. The books will be boxed and delivered to the appropriate libraries/schools/neighbourhood centres/community centres in batches as soon as the communities are ready to receive them. We’ll be liaising with councils, libraries and schools to ensure this is done appropriately. Feel free to pop a note inside, or if you’re an author, sign it.

Here's the Facebook page link with up to the minute info

See the Romance Writers of Australia wordpress for more information

Thank you

Christina, this is such a great idea. My heart goes out to the flooded communities and everyone in Australia seeing the country decimated.
