book launch : graffiti moon

today was the official launch of cath crowley's wonderful new novel for teenagers (and teenagers at heart) graffiti moon. gabrielle wang made a beautiful speech and read two excerpts.

it was a fantastic event with a lot of interesting and lovely people; gorgeous, bright kids running around; champagne; laughter and A GIANT CAKE IN THE SHAPE OF A SPRAY CAN! one of cath's friends made it and it was delicious as well as attractive.
apologies that the pics aren't of brilliant quality, but i hope they capture what was a great afternoon event. megan has some more (err...better) pics over at literary life.

i reviewed it a little while ago. if you've reviewed it too, leave a comment on this post and we can all read it!


  1. Awww thanks for posting these Kate! I'm still so bummed I wasn't able to go (no one could cover me at work) so am v. happy to see some pictures. That cake looks amazing!!! Glad everyone had a great time :)

  2. Great post! Nice pics too. So good to see you today too :D

  3. Also, that first pic of Cath and Gabrielle both looking to the left is awesome!

  4. girl friday - i know! would have been great to meet you.
    megan - yes, i really liked that one too. i am going to work on the quality, see if i can make it better (this is also called sending it to my sister the photoshopper extraordinaire)

  5. Hi Kate - I will be dropping into the book shop soon to say a HUGE thank you for my launch. I had such a wonderful time thanks to all the staff there - Clare and Deb and Michelle and you - such a great bookshop.
    thank you, thank you!

  6. Oh I am so jealous! We very rarely get authors over here in lil' old Perth doing events or a launch, let alone YA authors. And that cake does indeed look awesome :D
