Confirmed Dates for Michael in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch by ellenpc on 8 January 2003 3:30pm
 
FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After a lot of e-mails, phone calls, lucky punts and polite persistance I've managed to get info for Michael's tour in NZ courtesy of a very kind a helpful person at the publishers handling it.

He will be in Auckland on Mon 3rd Feb for two events: function/speech and booksiging, will be widely advertised, check the papers.

Wellington Tues 4th Feb for one early evening function.

Enquiries and tickets ($15 each) from the NZ Book Council ph: (04) 499 1569

Christchurch 7th Feb Friday
Also one function/ talk/ booksigning
called "The Press Literary Liasion" at the Centra Hotel. "Drinks" begins at 6:30ish then guests to be seated by 7:30pm. Booksigning at the end.

Tickets $20 from Easts Bookshop ph:(03) 377 0197.

These will be advertised in the local papers with full details of venues etc. to add to this information I've gleaned.


Everyone I've spoken to has been very helpful and friendly and keen to help me in this quest. Though they had to assertain exactly who I was before giving out info of course. I had to re assure the various secretaries along the way that I wasn't a rival publisher or from a particular tabloid newspaper or the TV but just a housewife from Christchurch!! :-}} With lots of friends at "Palin's Travels"!! :-}}

Heyas Ellen,

Just adding a little about the Auckland details

Michael will be having a "litery lunch" at Lower NZI Convention Centre, Aotea Centre, Akl on Feb 3.

Apparently to obtain tickets there was a coupon in the NZherald. Looks like i will be giving the nzherald a ring..

Good luck Matt, I've got my fingers crossed for you. :-}}}

I've got amended times for Michael's function in Christchurch (don't you just love it when the people who should know i.e. the hosting bookstore give you incorrect info!!!)

As of the Christchurch Press Sat 11th Jan:

Michael's function at the Centra Hotel will be from 7pm to 9pm.
Tickets from East's Bookshop on High and The Centra Hotel. Seats are limited.


Yes nottlob, I would imagine so, with a bit of Python possibly. He did include that when he was last in Australia apparently.

Well the herald have told me that it appeared in the 8th of Jan edition.. anyone have that one :)?
Ive ordered a copy subject to availability.
I think he will be also doing Book Signings at Dymocks in town, as his Auckland stay is a jointly organised by the Herald and Dymocks
