It’s a month until The Secrets of the Huon Wren will be sitting pretty on shelves in bookshops all over the place, including your favourite independent book sellers, Big W and Target. And yesterday, tickets went live for my hometown book launch event. So excited about this! It will be hosted by Petrarch’s Bookshop at the University of Tasmania’s new Inveresk Library (which is absolutely gorgeous by the way). For locals, it’s just across from Blue Cafe, with loads of parking. The date is Thursday July 6 at 6pm.
Do you have to have a ticket to come?
Yep, please book your place via the link above.
How much are tickets?
Tickets are $10, which includes a celebratory drink on arrival.
Will I be able to buy The Secrets of the Huon Wren at the launch?
Sure will! The wonderful Petrarch’s people will have ample copies available for purchase.
I’ve already ordered a copy, can I bring it for you to sign?
Of course! I’d love to.
What kind of event are we talking about here?
It’s first and foremost a celebration! You can expect a Q&A between myself and Andy Durkin of Petrarch’s, followed by an opportunity to ask your own questions, and then book signings at the end. There will be plenty of time to mingle too!
I’m not familiar with the UTAS Inveresk Library, where is it?
Good question! It is fairly new, but if you search it in Google Maps, it’s there. Here’s a screenshot to help you find your way. You can drive into the QVMAG carpark and walk the short distance to the library, or there’s parking on the stadium side of the building too.
Um… what’s your book even about?
Haha! I’m glad you asked. Read the blurb here.
When is it again?
Here’s the skinny:
