It's a Cath Kind of Day

We have suddenly gotten in stock some of Cath Crowley's collection of writings for young adults - including her latest WORD IN DEEP BLUE! Why you may be asking? Well the answer is that we've heard on the grapevine that one of the local schools are holding an author talk so naturally if you're going to meet an author you need a book to sign! And what better time to update your collection.

I love going to hear authors talk about their books, it's so easy to forget that someone is tapping away on their computers to write the story (or by hand if you're a bit old school). I've had the privilege of seeing Leigh Hobbs (thanks primary school), Cassandra Clare, Marcus Zuzack, Alice Pung, Melina Marchetta and Leanne Hall. I feel like there's more but I kind of can't remember... I'd love to meet Jaclyn Moriarty for one and ask her why she created a fictional character who I can never truly marry, I mean meet, in real life. It's hard not to have great respect for authors, especially those who write absolutely massive tomes, the sheer dedication. I struggle to write more than five thousand words. Practice! 

But back to Cath Crowley, we have 
- Words in Deep Blue
- Graffiti Moon
- The Life and Times of Gracie Faltrain
- Gracie Faltrain Takes Control & Gets it Right

Which author or illustrator would you meet if you could? 

Happy reading!
