Talks and Walks, August and September 2013

August and September are usually the busiest time for children’s authors as far as school visits and other appearances are concerned. Here’s where I’ll be in the next couple of months, in case any of you want to come and say hi.

National Bookshop Day

I’ll be helping one of my local bookshops celebrate.
Fairfield Books, 117A Station St, Fairfield, Vic.
Sat 10 Aug 2-3 pm
There’ll be other authors throughout the day. Check the bookshop’s website for details.

Dragons of Melbourne Walks

During the Melbourne Writers Festival I am again conducting Dragon Walks around the city of Melbourne.
Let me open your eyes to the preponderance of dragons in Melbourne’s public spaces, from stone guardians to festive silken mascots. Along the way, I will share the mythology of these fantastic beasts and their abiding presence in storytelling. The walk finishes at the Chinese Museum and includes museum entry and afternoon tea.
Walks begin at the MWF Box Office, Federation Square and last for two hours.

  2. Guillaume,
    Good to hear from you. I’ve written another Dragonkeeper book called Blood Brothers. It’s the beginning of a second series. The next one will be out early next year.
