Afternoon tea with author of the Alice-Miranda children's books, Jacqueline Harvey



We are very excited to once again be hosting Jacqueline Harvey, the author of the Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose books.  This time we have organised an afternoon tea with Jacqueline at our local cafe, Cuppa Cottage.  The young fans will enjoy a milkshake and plate of goodies to eat as Jacqueline talks about Alice-Miranda’s latest adventure in bustling Tokyo and a little about the new Clementine Rose book due out on 1 April.  

2pm, Saturday 15 March 2014
Cuppa Cottage
 88 Station Street, Sandringham
          Tickets:     $20

The children will have a chance to ask Jacqueline lots of questions about her books and characters and the afternoon tea will conclude with a chance to get their books signed and for you to take a photo.  Each child will receive a goodies bag to take away.  

As seats are limited, this afternoon tea is designed for children who are happy to attend by themselves.  However, if an adult would like to accompany them a ticket needs to be purchased.  Non ticket holders may stay for the first 10-15 minutes at the start and return at 3:00 pm during the book signing section of the afternoon.

Copies of Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose books will be available to purchase during the beginning and end of the afternoon tea, or, if you wish to avoid the rush you could pop in to our store and purchase your books before the event (Cuppa Cottage is just across the crossing and along the street from the bookstore).  We also hope that we can arrange to have the new Clementine Rose and the Seaside Escape for sale before its official release date on 1 April.

A ticket to this special afternoon tea would make a great gift for an Alice-Miranda fan.
