Kylie Johnson is a poet, ceramicist, and one of my dearest friends. Last year while I was writing my little heart out in le petit bateau vert in Amsterdam, she sent me parcels throughout the year filled with treasures to keep me going, the sweetest gifts, and emails with quotes that would always resonate with me. She seemed to know exactly what I was going through, and knew when I needed a bit of encouragement, even from the other side of the world. You may recall I wrote a post about her beautiful studio – paper boat press – and home here…
Well, I’m delighted to announce that in celebration of the release of My Heart Wanders, dear Kylie is hosting an exclusive event in Brisbane on May 7th. Together we’ve been working out the finer details over the last couple of months, and I can tell you, it’s going to be grand, I am so excited about it… imagine an afternoon spent on the grounds of one of the quaintest locations in Brisbane, surrounded by local made by hand goodness while we sip tea, eat petits sandwiches & butterfly cakes, all the while chatting about taking risks, letting go, and making a home wherever you are…
Tickets are $15 each, but if you buy the book (which is $59.95) and ticket combo, it will be a neat $65. You can also order more signed copies of the book to pick up on the day if you want to buy some for friends and family. All tickets and books must be purchased online through Kylie’s shop here. There will be a limited amount of tickets available, so please order asap as tickets have already been selling fast.
I cannot wait to meet you all in Brisbane – so many of you have been such wonderful inspiration to me over the past few years, and it will be an incredible experience to be able to meet you in person and get to know you that little bit more. A big thank you to Kylie and her studio girls who have been working hard over the past months to put this very special day together.
