Book launches: two books, two launches

They’ve been around unofficially for a couple of months, but they haven’t officially been launched yet. The launches happen this week, and if you’re in Melbourne you’re welcome to attend one or both of them. The books in question are The Tame Animals of Saturn, by Adam Browne, and Sean O’Leary‘s short fiction collection Walking.

Here are the details. (Note that each launch features both books):

Launch 1 is at the Kathleen Symes Library and Community Centre, 251 Faraday St, Carlton VIC 3053, on Thursday 9th June at 7-8 pm. The launch, in ‘Multi-Purpose Room 1’, will have light refreshments provided. The reading from Adam’s book will be by Australian actor Francis Greenslade, while the reading from Sean’s book will be by the author himself. Both authors will be on hand to chat about and sign their books, and there will also be art on display and for sale.

Launch 2, with readings by both Sean and Adam, is at the Hotel Jasper, 489 Elizabeth St, Melbourne, on Friday 10th June at 6-7 pm. This launch, in the Granger Room (‘room 1’), is part of Continuum 12; since it’s part of the convention, there’s an entry fee of a gold coin donation which gets you access to all of Friday evening’s events at the con. There won’t be refreshments provided at the launch itself, but I’m given to understand the hotel bar is in reasonable proximity.

As the typesetter for both books, as well as the editor for Sean’s, I’m hoping we get a good turnout for the events.
