August 26 is going to come round faster than I think it will and I have two very important events in my calendar for that day.
Here in Perth, I am scheduled to speak as part of the Women Achievers night for the National Council of Jewish Women of Australia fundraising event. I’m so blown away to have been asked that I have no idea what I will talk about. For 15 minutes. I need to start working on that speech.
In Melbourne, Twelfth Planet Press is scheduled to have a showcase at the Melbourne Writers Festival. We are hosting a free event with food and drinks at the Yarra Building, Federation Square at 5.30 pm. More information can be found on the Melbourne Writers Festival programme. Jason Nahrung has been working incredibly hard on the ground in Melbourne to make this work. And Deborah Biancotti and Kaaron Warren are flying in for the event. Also part of the event are the Melbourne Twelve Planets – Lucy Sussex, Narrelle M Harris, Deb Kalin, Rosaleen Love and Kirstyn McDermott – and Jason Nahrung. What a fantastic lineup! To top that, we have Kerry Greenwood to help launch the event and especially the newly released Cracklescape by Margo Lanagan. I wish I could be there! It’s going to be heaps of fun.
Things are incredibly busy at the moment. Just having to learn to run faster to keep up with it all!
