It's Our 30th Birthday
And what a wonderful night we had
at the ASB Waterfront Theatre
for our 30th Birthday Literary Concert
What a wonderful night - we laughed, we cried, we sat in wonderment. There was so much love for New Zealand's women writers, The Women's Bookshop and for Carole Beu who started it all 30 years ago.
Marvellous Book Launch for Loving Sylvie
We were honoured to launch Elizabeth Smither's new novel Loving Sylvie here at the bookshop.
Fabulous Book Launch for WomanKind
It was a full house for the launch of WomanKind: NZ Women Making a Difference. It opened with a karakia from Hineomoa Elder, continued with a short speech from the Margie Thomson, who interviewed and wrote about the featured women, and ended with a cheer.
Book Launch with Gwendoline Smith (AKA Doctor Know)
& The Book of Knowing - a little book about big feelings
PONSONBY ROAD FESTIVAL
The bookshop stayed open until 10pm & partied with the crowd!
Carole has received an MNZM for Services to the Literary Industry, in our 30th Birthday year! Here we are celebrating with the book trade.
