Trouble at ‘Joanna Shipwreck’ Book Launch
Queenscliff Maritime Museum will be the setting for the launch of Lorraine de Kleeuver’s new children’s book Trouble at ‘Joanna Shipwreck’. This is the third in a series of books about The Adventures of Felix and Pip, their super-friendly King Charles Spaniel and a happy-go-lucky water rat, on and around Port Phillip. The story begins and ends in Queenscliff and is set at the wreck of the “Joanna” which sank in 1857.
The other exciting thing about this launch, (apart from the fact that it is happening in our wonderful museum of course!), is that we will have some relics from the shipwreck on display in the museum. These have been loaned to us by Heritage Victoria. The artifacts will be on display from September 21 until the end of October.
The launch will take place at 11.00 am on Sunday September 24. Why not come along, check out the artefacts and purchase a book and have it signed by the author!
