Upcoming Event: National Bookshop Day

Guess what? This Saturday (August 9) is National Bookshop Day! It’s a wonderful day to celebrate the importance of bookshops in our community.

Last year, I had great fun participating in an author flashmob at Readings in Carlton (see http://skyemelki-wegner.com/archives/1639).

This year, I’m helping out at Dymocks Melbourne as an “author cashier”. Dymocks has planned an amazing day of authors, illustrators, cosplayers and even craft demonstrations! Best of all, the event is raising funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.

There will be authors and performers popping in and out all day. My time slot is from 11:45am to 12:45pm. If you’d like to come along and say hello or get your books signed, it would be great to see you there!

DATE: 9th August 2014

TIME: 11:45am – 12:45pm for me, but the event will run all day with different authors, performers and activities!
