Happy Book Week!
Happy Book Week everybody. Don’t forget to give your favourite book a hug or a kiss this week and tell it how much you appreciate it. Perhaps you could make your favourite book a cake (I’m happy to eat the cake if your book doesn’t want it). At this time of the year I also like to take a moment to think about all the books out there suffering from broken spines, dog-eared pages, water damage, and neglect. The world can be a very cruel place.
I’ve had to pull back from my book week appearances this year due to a million other commitments but I did manage to run a few writing workshops at St Brigid’s Primary in Coogee on Friday, and next week I’m off to The Hunter Valley Grammar School on Monday and St Mary’s Primary in North Sydney on Tuesday to share my love of books with all the students there.
May your days be filled with the sweet smell of new (or old) books and the comforting sound of pages being turned. Enjoy!
