On Friday we went along to the Canberra Theatre to talk about the story's latest incarnation. The theatre was packed and the queue to have you photo taken with the two authors was vast. Fortunately I'd booked early so our seats near the front afforded us a quick photo after their (very funny) show.
Afterwards we left the theatre and walked to the 'Forage' a trendy 'pop up' outdoor eatery place set up in the Melbourne building in the centre of Canberra. It was absolutely mobbed with people (which was kind of amusing as the building has gone through several facelifts and the take-away joints and cafes situated in the building have always failed - clearly the key lay in cooking the food in a tent, charging a premium for it, and making people eat outside). Either way the kids enjoyed a gourmet sausage before we headed back (noting that there was still a huge line of people waiting to be snapped with Andy and Terry!)
