Alright, so the title is a bit of a stretch, but I just wanted to quickly post about Shaun’s book reading at The Wheeler Centre in Melbourne this evening.
Shaun was his usual seemingly effortlessly humorous self, describing the story, his inspiration – plus reading an excerpt. A couple of weird points – only a handful indicated they had actually read it (including me) and even less said they had seen his ABC TV series. Who are these people?!
He finished up with some Q&A then a meet-and-greet-and-autograph session. Anyway, here is the photographic evidence. 🙂
More good news – as Piper commented earlier, it was confirmed that Smithereens is going to be back in print! To be released at the end of January next year. Huzzah! (For some reason, I never purchased a copy and very much regret it.) Looks like a slightly different cover (with the less-flattering hair cut), and it states – “Now with added Smithereens!”.
Now to catch up on some TV and watch the last Offspring episode – didn’t that have a special guest…?
