Disco Party Book Launch

21 May 2022, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Join Ali Stegert as Aleesah Darlison launches BOOGIE WOOGIE BIRD, a joyous picture book about a clumsy Curlew who dances his way to love. 

It’s a Disco Party Book Launch, so wear something sparkly and get ready to shake your tail feathers. A talented sister-duo will demonstrate dance moves, and we’ll play musical games and make birdie crafts. Ali encourages everyone to dance along while she reads the story, so bring your disco kids and Let’s Boogie!

Our Local Boogie Woogie Debut

Sunny Coasters, it’s time to SHAKE YER THANG!! YeeewwwW!

You’re invited!

Our Sunshine Coast friends and fans are invited to bring their kids / grandkids / neighbours’ kids to Harry Hartog Booksellers – Maroochydore for Story Time. We’ll play games, shake our tail feathers, and read the joyful story of a clumsy Curlew who hunts for his groove and finds love.

I’m delighted to share this event with my wonderful co-creator, Sandra Severgnini, illustrator and artist. You can find out about Sandra and her wonderful books on her website.

Buy a book, get it signed, and take home some activity sheets. Hope to see you and your kids there!
