    During NAIDOC Week in 2017 the AustLit and BlackWords Team from the School of Communication and Arts at The University of Queensland hosted a Great Book Swap to raise funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. It was a great success and we thank everyone for bringing along gold coins and wonderful books to share. A big thanks to UQP for their wonderful donations.
