Hackett – 50 years plus: Story of a north Canberra suburb
Dr Andrew Leigh, Federal Member for Fenner and resident of Hackett, officially launched the book ‘Hackett – 50 years plus: Story of a north Canberra suburb’ at the 'Party at the Shops' event on 27 October 2018.
HCA members and contributors have been working on this book for a number of years and are proud to see this comprehensive historical record of Hackett finally come into being.
We have sold all copies of the book but we have an eBook version which can be downloaded for $15.00.
You can pay by Paypal or major credit cards by clicking on the PayPal image below.
We will consider reprinting the book in early 2019 if we receive at least 100 orders. To lodge your interest, simply email Chris Mobbs with your address and contact details at firstname.lastname@example.org
