Back... with a book!

Article | Updated 8 months ago

Well, it's been a few weeks coming, but I am finally back on-line, following the demise of the weekly CEO News, encouraged by numerous expressions of dismay that CEO News had been terminated (not by me, I hasten to add...)

I know that this is not quite the same, but let us see how it goes...

My first 'CEO Blog' is to alert you to a book launch tomorrow night - not by the Museum, but by one of its staff, Engagement Officer, Campbell Whyte.

Congratulations to Campbell on publishing his first graphic novel for children and young people, Home Time.  It will have its Australian launch tomorrow (Friday 22 September) at City of Perth Library, 573 Hay Street, Perth WA 6000, at 18.30.

Inspired by growing up in Perth and exploring our city’s iconic landmark locations and unique biodiversity, Home Time shares the adventures of some Perth primary school students who fall into the Swan River and discover themselves in an enchanted world resembling Kings Park.  As the promotional material says: "The last school bell has rung and it’s finally HOME TIME! Even though they’re twins, Lilly and David don’t agree on much… except that the last summer before high school is the perfect time for relaxing with friends. But their plans for sleepovers, fantasy games, and romance are thrown out the window when the whole gang falls into a river and wakes up in a village of fantastic creatures."

Home Time was officially released at Comic-Con International in San Diego in July, but its exclusive Australian launch is tomorrow.
