I’m very honoured to be launching Wendy Orr’s stunning new novel, ‘Dragonfly Song‘ on Saturday, 2nd July, the same day as the Australian Federal Election. Join us at 4.00 pm at Readings Bookshop, Hawthorn, 701 Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn to celebrate the release of the book. Wendy is one of Australia’s most out-standing and versatile authors for younger readers. ‘Dragonfly Song’ will definitely get my vote on election day.
Whip out your diaries and pencil this in! The first Australian event celebrating the launch of Eat the Sky, Drink the Ocean.
