It’s always an exciting time to officially launch a book into the world, and today I’m really excited about launching China Bull. This manuscript won the 2015 Work + Tumble prize, and was co-authored by friend and poet John Koenig. Already there has been a lot of interest in the story that we re-tell – the sometimes shocking, but essentially powerful love story about my Great Grandmother and Great Grandfather.
The book has been printed in a very limited edition print run, and sold out of the Work + Tumble online shop in about a week. That means the only remaining copies will be on sale at today’s launch event. These are traditional chapbooks, printed using time-honoured letterpress methods and cutting edge digital techniques, and each of the covers has been hand stamped.
Limited copies of China Bull available on the day, plus copies of Confessional Box, and postcards featuring new poems.
Launch event details are as follows:
- TODAY – 17 October 2015
- Rendezvous Readers Tearoom, Williams Street, Dayboro
- Book will be launched by Trudie Murrell and Nikki Boyd MP, State member for Pine Rivers.
Hope to see you there!
