It looks like we’re having a launch-filled week, starting with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince on Wednesday (OMG), swiftly followed by Josephine Rowe’s How a Moth Becomes a Boat on Thursday (yay!), The Lifted Brow on Friday (YAY!), and Gendermash, which is also happening on Friday (bummer).
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince hits Australian cinemas this Wednesday. With reviews trickling in from the US, Rotten Tomatoes has given the film a promising 96% on the Tomatometer, which much gladdens the heart. The trailer’s looking on the up too:
Josephine Rowe will be launching the moth boat on Thursday night at Willow Bar. Josephine is one of Melbourne’s favourite young poets; she frequently features at launches, spoken word gigs, and in local literary journals. How a Moth Became a Boat will be her third self-published book. To read up on Josephine Rowe, check out her responsive interview with Literary Minded here.

For those of you who can’t make the Thursday night launch, Josephine Rowe and Tom Doig will be reading on Friday night at The Lifted Brow’s launch, and there will be musicians and raffles and cheap TLBs as well. Doors open at 8pm at The Tote.
Ack! So many things to go to!
