The Puncher & Wattmann Christmas Party
Each year in December Puncher & Wattmann hosts a Christmas party to showcase its list (and authors) and to launch some new books. The Christmas parties have a reputation for being excellently catered, and with fabulous entertainment: lion tamers, chanteuses, saltimbanques and minstrels to name but a few. Last year's Christmas party was held at the Annandale Town Hall - you can see pictures from it here, courtesy of John Tranter.
This year we are having TWO Christmas parties.
The first will be in Melbourne on December 1st at the Bella Union Bar from 3pm. There will be a gala reading - Les Wicks, Anthony Lawrence, Jill Jones, Ken Bolton, Cameron Lowe and David Prater will all be reading from their new books.
The second will be in Sydney on December 14th at the Balmain Town Hall from 3pm. We will be launching Jill Jones' The Beautiful Anxiety and Ken Bolton's Threefer, as well as doing what all parties should do - celebrating eight years of publishing.
