On Saturday 10th August bookshops all over Australia will be celebrating National Bookshop Day. Now in its third year, this national event highlights the importance of books and bookstores within our communities.
I plan to be there between 11.30am and 12.30pm because
Their special guest, Elliot *swoon* Perlman, award winning author of The Street Sweeper, (see my review) Three Dollars, Seven Types of Ambiguity and The Reasons I Won’t Be Coming, will be at the bookshop between 11.30am – 12.30pm.
Elliot will be delighted to chat with customers and sign copies of his books. (You can find out more about him beforehand at Meet an Aussie Author).
There will be lots of giveaways throughout the day, including a special gift title with purchases over $20 and fabulous goodie bags for younger readers (while stocks last). They will also be offering reduced prices on selected bestselling titles.
Join the celebrations!
PS I’ll be wearing my ANZ LitLovers badge, so do come and introduce yourself on the day!
