Our Sydney 'Caring Moments' Tour

Saturday 19th June

Well, the exciting news is that Pamela Eaves and I are off to Sydney tomorrow for a flying visit to launch and promote Caring Moments.

Alzheimer's Australia have kindly offered to launch our book at their Open Day on Tuesday. Then on Wednesday we are being interviewed on Canberra ABC radio by Genevieve Jacobs at 2pm and then by Tony Delroy for his Night Life show for Sydney ABC. Other than that, who knows what else might happened between our other meetings (probably way too much shopping and stops at the Lindt Chocolate Cafe).

So, if you feel like finding out more about the book or buying your copy please tune in to your local radio stations or pop down to the Alzheimer's Australia building for the Open Day.
