Herman and Rosie is finally in the book stores next week (Aug 22nd). We have, rather exitedly (and probably far too ambitiously) decided to have a number of book launches all over the country. I am doing speaking tours in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney in August and September so we've decided to do a launch at our favourite book stores in each city.
At each event I will be reading Herman and Rosie (which won't take too long I'm guessing) and speaking about the art and inspiration for the book. There will be drinks and signing and I'll probably do some drawing as well (if you're nice.) I also have some pretty cool friends to launch the book in each store. The first launch begins at the very funky Riverbend Books in Brisbane where it is being launched by the especially talented author of 'Dust', Christine Bongers.
... and in Sydney, Herman and Rosie will be officially launched at the The Children's Bookshop in Beecroft. This is a really amazing specialised children's store - love going there! The book is being launched by Markus Zusak, the incredibly well sold author of 'The Book Thief'. He also happens to be a rather nice guy.
Should be great fun. Love to see you there (and the kids of course) if you happen to be around. Many thanks to Tina Gumnior and the Penguin design team for doing these snappy invites.
See you soon!
