This Darwin tour has been an amazing experience. We have met so many friendly readers and all three events were very well organised. Thank you to Stacey at the Darwin City Library, Leisa at the Childbirth Education Association and Kaye at the NT Writers’ Centre for all your wonderful work! We are already looking forward to coming back.
