Next month Melina Marchetta's fifth title will be released in Australia. The Piper's Son revisits the world of Saving Francesca five years in the future. Duel protagonists, Tom MacKee and his auntie Georgie, tell their family's story and allow us to drop back in on some favourites. You can read this title before it's probable released in the US (probably in 2011-2012) through any of these online bookstores.
The below video shows Melina talking about her inspiration for this title, how she writes and the cutest dog ever.
A review of this title will appear on this blog next week with an interview to follow.
