20th January 2018
Between Us, Public events

There will be launches for Between Us in Darwin, Sydney and Melbourne. I can barely believe the book is finally going to be out in the world. I hope you can come and join us. Here are the details.


Wednesday 7th February,  5pm for a 5.30pm start at The Bookshop, 1/30 Smith Street Mall, Darwin City. 

To be launched by Kevin Kadirgamar, NT Young Australian of the Year 2018 and Young Lawyer of the Year. Kevin specialises in migration and is the lawyer for Mojgan Shamsalipoor, a young Iranian woman seeking asylum in Australia.


Thursday 15th February at 6.30pm at Becher House, Asylum Seeker Centre, 43 Bedford St Newtown.

To be launched by Melina Marchetta, an author I hugely admire. Melina’s writing is one of the reasons I got into writing for young adults – I love the way she explores culture and class in her stories.

Please note that this is a ticketed event so if you are keen to come please buy a ticket here. The ticket price includes a signed copy of the book and the rest of the money goes to the Asylum Seeker Centre to support their great work.


Monday 19th February at 6.30pm at Readings Hawthorn, 701 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn.

To be launched by Fiona Wood, an author whose writing I adore. Fiona has been an amazing support since Nona & Me came out and I’m thrilled to have her launching Between Us in Melbourne. This event is free, no booking required.

Hope to see you there!
