Greetings! 

Thanks to all of you who supported the BIGGEST MORNING TEA back in June. We raised a very good amount to assist the incredibly essential work of the Australian Cancer Council. Jan Romanowski was a tireless organiser and should be so very proud of her efforts, resulting in a great success!

The Noosa Parks Environment Centre was the perfect venue for our event with Inga Simpson. We launched her brand new memoir UNDERSTORY: A LIFE WITH TREES, one of my favourite books of late. Inga has a unique voice, and after three successful novels, has positioned herself in the upper echelon of Australian writing.

We had a great time (as usual) with the good people at Noosa Library, in celebration of Queensland Week. William McInnes was a hoot, as was Anna Daniels. Congratulations to Tracey, Liz and their hardworking and passionate team. We are fortunate to have such an active and interesting Library in our area.

THE 91-STOREY TREEHOUSE will be released on Tuesday 8th August. Give us a ring or pop in and order your copy. The first 20 copies will come with a small goody bag as well as the book.

I would just like to once again acknowledge my two friends and co-workers, Rachel and Palmira, who work the shop as if it were their own, with so much enthusiasm and knowledge. I am grateful every day to have them here with me.
 

Happy Reading...
 
Annie, Rachel & Palmira.

Kerri-Anne Kennerley A Bold Life
 
Kerri-Anne Kennerley is Australia's queen of television. But behind the glamour of a public life is a private woman. And a survivor.

A Bold Life
 is the tale of a Sandgate girl who chased her dream of being a cabaret star to New York, only to find herself stranded in a violent marriage to a dangerous drug addict. It's the journey of a unique and driven woman who built a remarkable 50-year career in one of the most fickle and male-dominated industries of all, and instigated some of the most iconic moments in Australian TV history along the way. 

Yet away from the spotlight Kerri-Anne has stared down a series of personal crises with grace and dignity, the latest in 2016 when a freak fall left John, her devoted husband of 33 years, a quadriplegic. On their long road to recovery Kerri-Anne found herself reflecting on a lifetime's memories, good and bad
 
Honest, fabulous, powerful and poignant, this is Kerri-Anne Kennerley's  own extraordinary  and inspiring story of A Bold Life.

This is a perfect opportunity to get together for a Christmas party for work or with friends!
