This Friday at 3pm we will be having our own book launch for the new book My New Zealand Story : Canterbury Quake Christchurch 2010-2011
It is the latest book in the My New Zealand Story series, written in diary format and written by Desna Wallace.
It is the tale of 10 year old Maddy.
“Anyone would think Maddy’s world had crumbled when she didn’t get a cell phone for her eleventh birthday. But Maddy soon has far more important things to worry about. In the dark of night, with a terrifying rumble and a deafening roar, the world turns upside down! Suddenly, words like ‘liquefaction’, ‘aftershocks’ and ‘state of emergency’ bubble to the surface of her vocabulary.
As Maddy navigates the bumps and crashes of life after the big quakes, she discovers how strong family ties can be, and finds friendship in the most unlikely of places.”
This book will be available on Friday for $20 with profits going to the purchase of new library books.
You can get an order form from the library and pay in advance or pay on the day.
And yes – the author is me – your librarian.
Come and see me on Friday and I will sign your books for you.Share
