My stunning Glendowie College book launch
Now I’ve had time to digest all the amazing things that have happened to me over the last month, I want to pick out one of the major highlights.
The most stunning way to start building a relationship between my book and the NZ school community was to have my school book launch at Glendowie College. To introduce Murder at Mykenai to 500 Year 9 and 10 students was incredibly exciting. They gave me such a warm welcome, they loved my start turn (the replica Greek Bronze Age sword), they laughed in a kind way at my blooper-of-the-day, and presented me afterwards with a very special bonus in the form of several large, A3 size, thank you cards.The messages, major and minor, are so generous and enthusiastic, and show that they really embraced what I had to say. What a fantastic first audience. I’m incredibly grateful to Robin Harding and the English department for organising the two sessions.
There are more photos, which I’m putting on my Facebook Catherine Mayo Author page. Yay!
