to Julie Thorndyke on the launch of her novel Mrs Rickaby’s Lullaby.
Celebrating the birth of a new book is always one of the great pleasures, after all the hard work in bring it to fruition. It was launched by the well known poet and writers and mentor Beverley George surrounded by Julie’s family, friends and writing colleagues. And very enjoyable to share a glass of wine and some delicious cheeses while we chatted with writer, friends old and new.
Hartog Bookshop at Macquarie Centre was a welcoming space for just such an experience.
Special mention was made of Ginninderra Press and the invaluable gratitude many of us have for the support we receive from this publishing company. Thanks to Brenda and Stephen Matthews.
Mrs. Rickaby’s Lullaby was a wonderful read, cleverly written with well developed characters and twists of story just like in real life.
