PUBLISHER ANN MALLINSON BUSY IN RETIREMENT
The Bookman asked Ann what she was doing in her "retirement" following the sale of her company Mallinson Rendell to Penguin Books. Here is her reply:
"I have a small job as Theatre and Film Agent for Lynley Dodd. A Scottish company, Nonsenseroom Productions, has long been interested in putting on a Hairy Maclary production, and since we could not get funding in New Zealand to take Maclary Theatre Productions' "Hairy Maclary Show" overseas, Nonsenseroom Productions will be putting on "Hairy Maclary and Friends" at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2010. It will be at the Assembly Rooms at 10.30 am from 5 - 29 August.
Maybe some New Zealand Hairy Maclary fans will be able to see the show if they are in Edinburgh at that time. Not only would they be able to take in that show, but they could also attend Wayne Mills' international final of the Kids Lit competition, (see separate story below).
