Museum of Thieves launch
September 29th, 2010
Hooray, it’s publication day in Australia and the US, and at last the book is in the shops! Here in Tasmania we are building up to the official Australian launch on Sunday October 10th at 11 am. The launch will of course be held at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.
There’s an old convict-built warehouse out the back of the museum called the Bond Store, which is very atmospheric, and the museum’s Deputy Director of Public Programs, Peter West, has kindly promised to lend us some large models of mega-fauna (giant prehistoric wombats etc) to make it even more interesting.
Here’s a pic of Bonnie, Sarahbell, Ella and Sabine. Bonnie and Ella’s mother Annette Downs is going to do the launch, and the two girls are going to help. They are (as far as I know) the first Tasmanian children to read the book.
