Once again, we had a fabulous time at this annual event, just over the Remutuka hill from our little shop in Upper Hutt. So many amazing authors, events and all workshops over an intense weekend.
Ian and Caro would like to thank the volunteers who look after us booksellers in the ANZAC Hall (especially Gary for the coffees). It is the little things that make the Booktown festival weekend so special.
It is always wonderful to meet and catch up with other booksellers; to chat with readers and authors, both regulars and newcomers alike. The events were outstanding, as usual.
Hope to see you in 2023 when Booktown will be back in May.

Bruce Melrose is the author of five novels following the exploits of John Kelly, an aspiring middle-distance runner, then unwitting coach, to a new generation of athletes who bring a whole raft of altogether different problems.
Recently, Bruce finished two action-adventure/thriller stories set in the South Pacific. His first novel, For Past Sins is due later this year, while Coconut Milk Run, is scheduled for 2023.
Bruce is currently penning another story, also set in the South Pacific, this one with a working title of Smuggler.
