Abstract: 1996 was a difficult year for CALLS; nevertheless there have been some significant developments in the Centre's activities. Book sales of our publications from previous years have continued strongly. The Gajer Bibliography was reprinted, and copies of the Campbell Howard Index are still selling. J S Ryan's edition of Boldrewood's 'Grazier's Guide' sold well, and at last report was approaching the point where it would cover its costs. Leonie Rutherford's, Megan Roughley's, and Nigel Spence's edition of 'Louisa Lawson's Collected Poems' was finally launched in March 1996 at the CALLS annual dinner. Production of the book was a very difficult process. The first printing was pulped because of production and design problems. A second printing with a redesigned cover and some internal changes was carried out by the UNE printery. Given these difficulties, it is unlikely, sadly, that the Louisa Lawson book will cover its costs. The book was launched, very elegantly, by Marion Halligan at the CALLS Annual dinner, and her speech on Australian literature and food to a large and receptive audience was a model of its kind: personal, erudite, thoughtful, and witty. It was a very successful dinner, which attracted a wide range of people from across the University and the town.
