Paper Plus books spokesperson Kerre Woodham is visiting Orewa on Friday 29 August to chat about her favourite reads. Russell Hodgson and Robyn Doussau from Paper Plus Orewa invite the community to attend the evening event and enjoy a glass of bubbly while talking with Kerre about their favourite books.
It will be an evening of celebration for Kerre too, as she looks forward to discussing her memoir Short Fat Chick to Marathon Runner, a characteristically witty and candid account of how she worked her way to fitness and completed both the Auckland and New York Marathons – all after inauspiciously turning up to her very first training session with a hangover.
Guests will also enjoy special appearances by two New Zealand authors: Diane Levy, a well known family therapist who has written several popular parenting books including Time Out for Tots, Teens and Everyone In Between, Of Course I Love You... Now Go To Your Room and They Look So Lovely When They're Asleep. Diane also hosted TV3’s popular series: Demons to Darlings. Joining her will be freelance journalist and author Nicky Pellegrino who draws her inspiration from the Italian Mantra “You Live to Eat”. Nicky’s latest novel is The Gypsy Tearoom.
Russell and Robyn say the evening will be a celebration of great reading and a chance for the guests to chat about their favourite books while relaxing with a glass of bubbly.
The event will be hosted by Paper Plus Orewa from 6.30pm at the Orewa Community Centre. Entry to the VIP night costs $10 with $5 going to Hibiscus Coast Hospice. Tickets can be purchased from Paper Plus Orewa.
Kerre is a well-known presence on the Paper Plus website and in stores, each month announcing and reviewing her preferred latest books in Kerre’s Choices, and sharing her thoughts in the Paper Plus Book Club online discussion forum. The Paper Plus Book Club gives readers the opportunity to review books they love, add comments to other reviews and receive special book offers.
