A Happy New Year to all our supporters and follower! 

We hope that your holiday was energising and restful. 

Since our last update in October 2017, the book has continued to proceed through the editing process, as always, becoming still larger and more extensive. Because of this, we have taken longer than anticipated to have everything edited and collated. At the moment we will be going to the publishers at the end of February, with the book due to be released in November 2018. We have realised that this is quite typical of book publications and we appreciate your support and patience over the course of the coming year. 

In this update, we are showcasing a segment by prominent Australian children’s author, Anna Fienberg, daughter of Len & Barbara Fienberg, who reflects on her childhood experiences growing up in two Bruce Rickard Houses, Fienberg I (Chatswood) and Fienberg II (Palm Beach). In this chapter, she fondly recalls how “The bush beyond our house seemed to go on forever – like Narnia beyond the wardrobe.” 

 

As always, we will continue to post regular updates, which you can find on Kickstarter, Facebook and Instagram:
