National Bookshop Day, Saturday August 9th

If you have seen our window this week you will know that we have a big day planned for National Bookshop Day on Saturday. The following authors will be there and they will be talking to customers about books, writing and anything else that takes their fancy.
They are:
10-11am Archie Fusillo, author of The Dons and The Dead Dog in the Middle of the Night.
10-30-11.30am Jen Storer, author of Tensy Farlow, The Accidental Princess, Truly Tan and The Crystal Bay Girls.
11-12 Fran Cusworth, author of The Sisters of Spicefield and an essay in Best Australian Essays 2013
11-12 Kylie Ladd, author of Last Summer, After the Fall and Into My Arms
11.30-12.30 Anna Branford author of Violet Mackerel and Lilli Pilli’s Sister
12.30-1.30-Carole Wilkinson, author of the Dragonkeeper and Ramose series
1-2pm Michael Pryor, author of The Laws of Magic and The Extraordinaires, 10 Futures and Machine Wars.
1-2pm Corinne Fenton author of Queenie, Hey, baby and Hey Dad, You’re Great
2-3 Zana Fraillon author of Monstrum House and No Stars to Wish On

As well as all of these authors we have the illustrator of Snap! And My Abuela’s Table, Daniella Germein here from 11am. She will be demonstrating her skills.

As in past years, we will be decorating our front window. This year you can write the name of your favourite book on the window.
Last month, The Australian Bookseller’s Association gave people the opportunity to vote for their favourite children’s book. The titles have been compiled into a flyer which we will be handing out.

Our Storytime session will be at 10.30 and will become a regular Saturday feature.

And of course, we will have mini cupcakes and muffins to hand out, the number depending on how late I stay up on Friday night!!

Come on down and find us on the footpath in front of the shop.
