Buy the book!

Penguins under the porch was launched in Oamaru on 31 May 2018! Ask for it in bookshops throughout New Zealand.

I had a wonderful evening at the book launch, meeting friends old and new. Many thanks to Waitaki District Libraries for hosting the event and to Paper Plus Oamaru for promoting it - and bringing a supply of books on the day!

The mayor, Gary Kircher, surprised me with two presents: one for me (completely unexpected) and another for the mayor of Devizes, Oamaru's English twin town.

In the UK, Penguins is available from YPD: http://ypdbooks.com/biography/1774-penguins-under-the-porch-a-yorkshireman-s-ode-to-oamaru-YPD01960.html
