What a wonderful night - we laughed, we cried, we sat in wonderment. There was so much love for New Zealand's women writers, The Women's Bookshop and for Carole Beu who started it all 30 years ago.

 Marvellous Book Launch for Loving Sylvie

We were honoured to launch Elizabeth Smither's new novel Loving Sylvie here at the bookshop.
