Greetings!

 

What a time we've had! This year has been hectic, exciting and a lot of fun!  

 

We kicked off the year with Sean (the magician) Tretheway, with the launch of Beyond the Road, a spiritual adventure novel;  crime author Kathryn Howell spoke about her books and her career as a paramedic; we launched the third book from Loani Prior, Queen of the Tea Cosies, How Tea Cosies Changed the World; award-winning author, Simon Cleary was a delighful guest, and we loved his novel Closer to Stone; we celebrated with local author and good friend of Lynnie and I, Annah Faulkner, when we launched her brilliant novel The Beloved, winner of the last of the Queensland Premier's Literary Awards for Emerging Author; Brisbane literary mega-star Kimberley Freeman (alias Kim Wilkins) celebrated the release of Lighthouse Bay here in Peregian Beach where she was inspired to write the story; local photographer extraordinaire Craig Holmes presented the gorgeous Dogs and Their Families after 18 months of hard work; Pat Noad presented her fifth crime novel, Unearthed , featuring Annie Bryce; we lunched with the lovely Kate Morton whilst she presented her fourth novel The Secret Keeper, and dined with Luke Nguyen as he took us to exotic places in his new book Greater Mekong.  

 

Add to this a massively successful Biggest Morning Tea, author signings, ABC Radio book reviews, small outside events, school events and the day to day busyness of this little shop and I must say it's been a wonderful year!


But it's not over yet.

Happy reading,

from Annie & Lyn

PHIL JARRATT SURFING AUSTRALIA: A COMPLETE HISTORY OF SURFBOARD RIDING IN AUSTRALIA:

 

Surfing Australia

Surfing Australia, a whopping coffee table book illustrated with more than 150 photographs and with forewords by multiple world champion surfers Layne Beachley and Mark Richards, provides the first ever detailed account of the sport's pioneering years, from the repeal of the surf bathing prohibition, through the first attempts at standing on surfboards to Duke's demonstrations during the Great War, then on through the paddleboard years to the introduction of the Malibu performance surfboard in 1956. The book then recounts the years of the surfing boom and the development of competitive board riding leading to Australia's dominance in the professional era.


We thought this was worth a celebration, so we are celebrating Phil's launch of this fantastic new book, along with the fact it's Christmas time again.
