We were very fortunate to be able to launch In the Beech Forest at the National Literature Conference on Friday the 26th, held in the Fremantle Prison. Thankyou to The Literature Centre, the volunteer staff and to Lesley, who organised the event, and also the Isobelle Carmody, who launched the book for myself and Gary . It was great to have Gary there as he is an incredible speaker. But thanks must be extended to the attendees who gave us their support through buying the books, as well as to the other presenters Shaun Tan, Lucy Christopher, Tony Eaton, Roy James, Julia Lawrinson, Jackie French and Matt Ottley who attended too.
It was a wonderful event with three launches altogether and two solid days of lecturing. Thankyou as well, Paul, my publisher, for this working opportunity.
