I'm so excited to be visiting Adelaide very soon. I've never been to South Australia and Adelaide looks to be a beautiful city. I hear that you have lots of lovely churches. While I'm there, my best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey will be presenting some writing workshops for public libraries, doing an interview on ABC radio and visiting bookshops; four of which she'll be doing on Saturdays over the coming month - and I'll be tagging along too of course. She's also working on two new books, Alice-Miranda In Japan and Clementine Rose and the Seaside Escape.
If you'd like to meet me and Jacqueline Harvey we'll be at the following bookshops on:
Saturday 20 July Dymocks Rundle Mall 1-2pm
Saturday 27 July Dillons Norwood 1-2pm
Saturday 3 August Collins Edwardstown
Saturday 10 August (National Bookshop Day) Mostly Books Mitcham 11-12
I can't wait to meet new friends in Adelaide and I'm so excited about my new books which are coming very soon (1 September for Alice-Miranda Shines Bright and the Alice-Miranda Diary for 2014). But first Clementine Rose has a new book which will be released on the 1st August. It's called Clementine Rose and the Farm Fiasco.
Here's a sneak peak at the diary cover.
Lots of love,
- Jacqueline Harvey
