Regretfully, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our Melissa Lucashenko event, in conversation with Adam Thompson. This is due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak in Brisbane (Melissa Lucashenko is a Queensland resident). We thank you for your understanding of the uncertainty of these times as we work to bring you the outstanding calibre of events we know you love. We are still very hopeful of welcoming Melissa Lucashenko to Tasmania sometime later this year.
If you have already purchased tickets, you will be contacted by email to arrange a reimbursement.
The good news is that our Katherine Scholes event, in conversation with former ABC broadcaster Annie Warburton on February 21 at Waterton Hall, is going ahead!
Come along and meet the Tasmanian author whose books have sold more than 2 million copies. Scholes, born in Tanzania but who has lived in Tasmania for many years, will reflect on her earliest memories of horse-riding across the paddocks of Waterton Hall before she even had thoughts of becoming a storyteller. Her myriad novels can now be found on bookshelves across the globe. While Scholes's books are set in Tanzania, her writing is imbued with clues that she is proud to call Tasmania home.
The event includes afternoon tea, complimentary glass of bubbly on arrival, wine & gin tasting and an optional tour of the splendid Waterton estate.
Petrarch's bookstore will be on site to oversee book sales and signing.
Tickets are $69.95 each, and have nearly sold out, so book quickly to avoid disappointment.
