The Wattle Tree
If you are in Melbourne this weekend, you may like to traipse down to The Gardens Shop at the Botanical Gardens, Birdwood Avenue, South Yarra (opposite the Shrine of Remembrance). You can join John Bell and Ben Wood in celebrating the release of the their new book, The Wattle Tree! They have kindly asked me to say a few words too! I can't wait for the event and such a perfect setting.
'The Wattle Tree tells the story of a young girl coming to terms with the loss of her grandmother. She finds a tree in the bush near her house that seems imbued with her grandmother's spirit: as she visits it again and again she discovers that even those we have lost can have a continuing presence in our lives.'
