My new book, Nomad, has lead me to think about the crisis that independent booksellers face- to support them & to encourage people to shop locally ie not online and to enjoy the knowledge & personality that comes with a great independent bookseller. If we do not support these fabulous shops they will go & this would be a great travesty.
For the launch of Nomad, we targeted what we admire as amazing Australian bookshops that are to be celebrated (hope to see you at my remaining booksignings!)-
Suzy is the energetic force behind Riverbend Bookshop & Teahouse, which hosts up to three events a day (& I thought I was busy!). They are huge supporters of authors & their books in all formats and have an extensive range of illustrated, text & children's books.
Hosted on their leafy verandah I chatted to a sell-out crowd with a beautiful breakfast of fresh fruit, poached eggs with asparagus & other fresh seasonal kitchen garden picks. Please check out all their upcoming events here.
