Our Ginger Meggs 100th anniversary book has just been released and we’ve been doing lots of TV, radio, video and podcast interviews. Book reviews are popping up all over the place, too. Here’s a selection to give you an idea of what we’ve been up to.
It’s been a fun time and I’ve been so proud to share this book with the world and to be doing it alongside illustrator and cartoonist Jason Chatfield. If you don’t have a copy yet, you can order one online here or ask in your local bookshop. Some of my favourite moments of the past few weeks were when a man leaned over to me at the Sydney Writers’ Festival launch and said, ‘I’ve been reading Ginger Meggs for 70 years!’, as well as being interviewed by Phillip Adams on his Late Night Live show. Lots more below.
