good books doing good things™
Pantera Press is all about great storytelling. One story to tell you about is our mantra of good books doing good things. Its three elements are key to why we're different:
good books... welcoming, discovering & nurturing new storytelling talents, writers of stories that readers can rave about
doing... how we're playing a different publishing game... for more, explore our website, and read here
- good things... the 4 philanthropic areas we're putting our money & efforts into - closing the literacy gap for the next generation of readers - the joys of reading - quality writing - fostering ideas & debate.
Here's a little about the good things we've been supporting, and how you can help:
In 2013, we’re partnering with a unique charity run by surfers, Misfit Aid. It’s to raise awareness for their volunteer work, for beach safety and to encourage surfers and beach lovers to ‘take a book to the beach’. We’re doing that by working with Sydney’s No.1 FM radio station, Triple M, and sponsoring Tommy Herschell’s twice-daily Surf Reports plus a host of community service spots promoting Misfit Aid.
A wonderful initiative of the Centre for Community Child Health, Let's Read is being implemented across Australia, including in Indigenous communities, in partnership with The Smith Family. Click here to read The Smith Family's announcement of its partnership with Pantera Press.
