Clementine Rose and I are really excited to be doing our first in store event with Big W on Easter Saturday. A brand new store just opened yesterday in Katoomba and we're going to be there on Easter Saturday from 1.00-2.30pm along with our best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey. We love the Blue Mountains and fingers crossed that there will be lots of visitors over the Easter weekend as well as loads of locals out and about. It's a great chance to stock up on some books for the school holidays and I think Big W might have a good supply of chocolate to go with them too!
Jacqueline Harvey will be signing books and giving a short talk at the beginning of the event. I'm sure that she would be very happy to answer any questions you might have too. Clemmie and I will be there for photos.
We can't wait to meet everyone!
Lots of love,
- Jacqueline Harvey
