My novella series, Wisdom Tree, was released at monthly intervals from 1 May to 1 September 2016, and that’s meant events and festivals galore. Many are now behind us, but this one-man five-small-book carnival keeps rolling until May 2017.

23 March 2017 IPSWICH
Bringing Wisdom Tree to Ipswich Library (free, but a good idea to book)

Full Program here
1 April 2017
5.20pm – Can’t Get There From Here panel: Born overseas, raised in Australia – it’s a pretty common story, but does that sense of “foreign-ness” impact the way you feel and how you create? And does the culture of your country of birth, and your childhood experiences, give you a different perspective when it comes to consuming art?
Moderator: Zan Rowe
Panellists: Nick Earls, Ngaiire, Tim Steward

2 April 2017
4.00 – White Rabbit panel: Writing by, for and about women. A panel that unpacks the influence of women through their effect on writers’ lives, on their characters, their process and the connection with audiences.

Panellists: Peggy Frew, Nick Earls, Kirsty Eagar, Melissa Lucashenko

12.15pm Word Hunters show (Wheeler Place) as part of family day

    Hi Nick, it was such a pleasure meeting you and Terry earlier this week at Cleveland Library. It think it was a great event and you managed to keep almost 150 kids/ people entertained and engaged for an hour! WOW! Impressive. I hope you and Terry survive and enjoy the rest of your tour.

      Hi Gillian. It was very good to meet you too and thanks for having everything so well set up for the event. And what a great bunch of kids they were. The only thing we had to try to manage was their enthusiasm, which is exactly what you hope for, but not always how it works out.

    Just wondering if you will have word hunter for sale at jimboomba library on Friday. Have tried the local bookshop (boonah) but they don’t have it in stock. Could you bring two copies for me to purchase. Thankyou, Lesley.

    • nickearls says:

      I’m glad to hear you’re coming – thanks for that. Jimboomba’s ‘That Book Place’ will be there selling books, so we should have no problem making sure you end up with two copies. Thanks again.

  3. Lesley says:

    The kids and their visiting coast cousins loved seeing you at jimboomba on Friday. When they left our place on Friday afternoon – with much merriment – they stuck their heads out the window and yelled ‘that is all’.
    You have four new fans.

    Hi Nick,
    thanks for coming to Ashgrove State School. I really like your books because they are fun and exciting. I am just reading the Word Hunters numbers 1 and I think its great. I can’t wait to read the next two – hopefully there will be more.

    Thanks again

      Hi Henry,
      It’s great to hear that – I really appreciate it. After all the research and planning (and writing and illustrating), it’s very good to know that the books actually work when people read them.
      Thank you.

    Let’s pray we are home by the time your Brisbane sesh happens… 🙂

    • nickearls says:

      I’m hoping you’re home soon, and that things go as well as they can in the meantime. You’re on a lot of people’s minds back here.

      • Mama Gringa says:

        Thanks Nick. We’ve had some news today, so might just make it by the skin of our teeth… although I do have a request: Could you do your launch in Spanish too for my girl?
