Burning Books: Gleebooks
On Thursday, 25 September 2008, I will be in conversation with Markus Zusak, author of The Book Thief, at Gleebooks in Sydney. The event kicks off at 6.30 for 7, and reservations can be made on 9660 2333 (or see the link at right).
I am a bookseller with Hordern House Rare Books in Sydney, Australia, where I first became interested in the culture of book burning while researching a catalogue of utopias and imaginary voyages. My first book, Burning Books, has been published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2008.
Together with Mark Tewfik, I am currently working on a picture book investigating the graffiti written on bombs during the Second World War.
