“The community around Warwick have always been very generous towards our organisation, and we are very excited about being able to offer them some great quality books at really great prices,” she said.

The Lifeline Daily News 2016 Warwick Bookfest kicks off with a twilight to evening session on Friday from 5pm to 9pm.
