Annie's Books on Peregian
Dear Annie,
 
May slipped by with great speed, but we managed to fit a lot in!  We enjoyed gathering on the footpath to hear from Derek Berg, author of "Shipping Broker", who shared the wonderful account of his father's life.  The following week brought Michelle Brennan to the shop to present her book "Mysterious Orbs" and discuss this intriguing subject.  They were two very different books, but both events were enjoyed by a good number of people.  We plan to keep these footpath events regular and entertaining.

The Noosa Longweekend is about to begin!  There's an exciting line up of guests from all genres, including, of course, Literature.  The tickets are more affordable and the range of artists is broader this year.  There's something for everyone, but hurry up or you'll miss out!  I have programs available in the shop.


Happy reading,
from Annie & Lyn 
 
EVENTS

"THYLACINE MAN":  NOEL TUCKEY
Annie's Logo
This is a fast paced thriller from another Sunshine Coast author.  The fictional story explores the hidden world of the Tasmanian Tiger, presumed extinct since 1936.  Incredibly, new pictures are captured deep in the rainforest of this unique marsupial, and a doubting world is stunned by their release. 

Based on actual events, gripping battles erupt between conservationists desperately working to save the species, a government corrupted by multinational oil search barons, and the mysterious CEO of the Barandelli Bio-Link Foundation.  These exclusive photos of the Thylacine raise tremendous interest around the world, but what repercussions will they have politically and environmentally?

THURSDAY 30th JULY - 5.30pm

WINE & CHEESE ON THE FOOTPATH

"IVORY MOON": SALLY HENDERSON
Ivory Moon 
This is an eagerly awaited new release from Sally Henderson, author of the bestselling memoir "Silent Footsteps", about her life among the elephants of Africa.  "Ivory Moon" is set in Namibia, and is also autobiographical.  Unable to resist the constant pull of Africa, Sally and Jer pack up and head to an isolated safari camp in the Namib Desert where existence depends on the life-giving fog from the Skeleton Coast.  Longing for a wilderness experience where elephants roam the dunes, Sally is tested by extremes of climate, sandstorms, dangerous encounters with wildlife and camp politics.  Sally Henderson brings the Dark Continent to life!

Our MaroochyThere is a constant hunger for good picture books on the Sunshine Coast, but there is not a lot available.  A recent release is "Our Maroochy" by Mike Middleton, Cerran Fawns and Kate O'Reilly.  It's a large hardback, coffee table book full of fabulous photographs and minimal text.  "Our Maroochy" showcases the beauty of the Maroochy River, bringing together images from past and present through the eyes of many contributors, including my old childhood buddy and cinematographer, Mike Middleton.  We wish them great success with this very attractive book. "Our Maroochy" retails for $75.00.

Tim Winton has just won his fourth Miles Franklin award for Breath! The judges said it showed him at the height of his powers and "writing his greatest love letter yet to the sea". Read more at the ABC News website >>

Review by Annie Grossman
"REPUTATION AT RISK": ALEX HARRIS
 
ReputationReputation, says local author Alex Harris, underpins the performance and future profitability of companies; the performance and stability of governments. It is the difference between getting investors and getting slammed in the press; getting sales, and getting shut down by environmental groups.  Your reputation precedes you.
 
Alex has penned Reputation at Risk, an insightful, hard-hitting analysis of companies, of situations, and circumstances that remind us of how fragile and how important reputation is, and how often we forget that until it is on the line.

Even for the uninitiated, this is an easy engaging read, much like In Search of Excellence or One Minute Manager. You will be shocked, you might learn something and I'm sure you will find yourself talking about it long after you have finished reading it.

Alex is passionate about the issues of corporate social responsibility, business ethics, reputational risk and leadership. Since 1994 Alex has spoken regularly at conferences in the United States and Australia.
