Book Launch of The Red Suitcase

A Real Family Affair

The Red Suitcase by Jill Harris Mākaro Press 2014 was launched last night by Jill's husband (very appropriately on the eve of ANZAC Day) at the Children’s Bookshop at Kilbirnie amidst much talk and laughter and general good will- it was standing room only. The launching area was appropriately enhanced with photos including one of the original red suitcase plus a life size model dressed in an authentic World War 2 Royal Air Force uniform.
