Much to our surprise on a rainy and miserable Adelaide night, the turn out was great at Anna Solding’s first ever Meet the Author session on Wednesday 20 June 2012. Members of an entire book club, who had all read the book with interest, came along to ask questions about it. Anna talked about the inspiration for the book and the long journey from idea to publication. Will there ever be a sequel? she was asked. The answer was: maybe… Anna has always been interested in writing more about the men who feature in The Hum of Concrete to show life from their point of view. You never know.
The owner of Mostly Books, Charmaine, was lovely and the session was a huge success in terms of how many people came to listen but also in terms of the relaxed atmosphere and the interesting questions that were raised. Thank you to Ross, Peter and Jim for sharing your photos. And many thanks to all of you who attended the event.
Anna’s next appearance will be at the Lee Marvin reading at Dark Horsey book shop on Tuesday 3 July, 7.30 for 8pm. Hope to see you then.
