Book Week Merchandise

2017 Book Week merchandise will be available to be ordered from the CBCA  e-store website.  The site will be available and active on the  8th May 2017.

As the South Australian Branch is no longer pre-purchasing and re-selling merchandise, ordering will be done directly from the e-store.
