The 2006 EX LIBRIS Port Fairy Book Fair truly has something for everyone.

The (seemingly) simple art of the story-teller ... the vision at the heart of fantasy ... the intellectual rigour of incisive social comment ... explosive debate on Iraq's evasive weapons of mass destruction ... the titillations of gossip ... the 'banal' but soul-searching decisions we have to make in our daily lives ... gardens big and small ... women's live (her story) ... shipwrecks of the SW coast ... stories of fun, loss, adventure, and environment for children and young adults ...

Authors and Story tellers in attendance: Azhar Abidi, Rod Barton, Don Charlwood, Fran Cusworth, Jonathan Harlen, Geoff Jones, Holly Kerr Forsyth, Martin Krygier, Andrew McKenna, James Moloney, Patricia Mullins, Ros Reines, Peter Timms and Lyn Willmott
