National Bookshop Day

This afternoon I was lucky enough to take part in National Bookshop Day. For those of you who are unaware, National Bookseller Day is an annual event in Australia that celebrates the place of independent bookstores in the community. I was one of the authors who appeared at Collins Booksellers Edwardstown and was lucky enough to sit on a panel with Aprille Legacy, author of the Soul Trilogy and Hannah Kent whose debut novel Burial Rites caused quite a stir, both locally an overseas. And I also met Peppa Pig who turned out to be the real star of the day, but that is another story ...

Bonus question: Did you celebrate National Bookshop Day today? If so, how and what events were there in your local area?
