National Bookshop Day is going to be great fun this year, with a line-up of in store appearances, balloons for the kids and an exhibition with local flavour.
This year, we will be joined by legendary caterer Simmone Logue and musician, artist and local legend Jeff Duff.
Simmone will be in store from 12pm, signing books and giving away biscuit samples from her beautiful and tasty cookbook In the Kitchen. Jeff will be in store from 3pm and he will be signing his outrageous memoir This Will Explain Everything.
We will be featuring in store a gallery of images from bestselling local history book Kings Cross: A Pictorial History. This is your chance to see some incredible images that tell incredible stories about our neighbourhood up close and personal.
And don't forget - there will be balloons for the kids. About the Authors
Simmone Logue started her food business in a small flat in Sydney's Neutral Bay, hand-delivering her cakes to local cafe owners. She then leased an old butcher's shop, added pies, braises and salads to her repertoire, and her business continued to grow. Now 25 years on, Simmone has created a $10 million business in wholesaling, retailing and catering.
Jeff Duff is arguably the most flamboyant, creative and controversial entertainer Australia has produced. His musical gifts and fantastical androgynous performances parallel the artistry of David Bowie. While Duffo's career kicked off in the 1970s, he continues to grow as an artist, creating new music and performing sell-out concerts to this day.
And no man looks as good in a leotard.
