Three events at the busy Children’s Bookshop in Wellington

1)   The Speed of Light book launch –

On Thursday August 14th at 6pm we join with Joy Cowley, and Gecko Press to launch “Speed of Light”, Joy’s new novel.

When a strange old woman is literally blown in to an affluent but dysfunctional family, and when things go wrong, her influence is suspect.
With a father more interested in money than family, a brother in prison, a sister with a secret, and a mother in denial, it’s no wonder Jeff buries himself in the safe world of mathematics.

When a storm hits Wellington, a strange old woman is blown into Jeff’s life, challenging everything he thinks is true.

All welcome, free of charge – to rsvp please contact
