The launch of The Bookshop on Jacaranda Street

Around 150 of Marlish Glorie’s family and friends gathered at Dymocks Fremantle to celebrate the national launch of her first novel The Bookshop on Jacaranda Street on Friday 8 May.

Glorie amused her crowd with anecdotes of the publishing process and thanked local Director and Theatre Arts Lecturer at Notre Dame University, Gabrielle Metcalf for launching her novel.

“The number of people who turned up and were eager to buy my book floored me. I was just so moved by the love and support they all gave me,” said author Marlish Glorie.

Glorie described the evening as a wonderful night.

“I had an absolute ball at my book launch and suddenly the four years it took me to write The Bookshop on Jacaranda Street made it all worth while.

“It is a night I could replay a thousand times,” said Glorie.

Glorie wrapped up the evening by mingling with her guests and signing copies of her book.

We’d like to thank Clive Klicker and the Dymocks Fremantle team for hosting the event.
