The brand new Dymocks in Auckland's Ponsonby Road launched itself with a book launch last week when Renee Lang's Auckland Harbour Bridge was launched by Random House's Margaret Sinclair.
It was a glittering, happy affair with a hundred or so local book lovers and a fair sprinkling of publishers along to support one of their own and to check out Ponsonby Road's newest bookstore.

Publisher-turned author Renee Lang,(pic right), was gracious as ever, and her choice of launch venue proved to be a good one. Well-stocked, clean and uncluttered with a books only stock, this new Dymocks was a joy to visit and is sure to become a popular launch venue.

50 Years of a city icon.
Renee Lang – Random House - $24.99

Read my review of the book here.
And an interesting piece in the NZ Herald this morning. The first in a series of Herald stories leading up to the bridge's 50th anniversary this coming Saturday.
