WIGU Aus Signing

There will be an exclusive book signing event held for When I Grow Up at Harry Hartog Bookseller, Westfield Bondi Junction, Shop 5036 500 Oxford Street, Bondi Junction, NSW, on Saturday 21th October, 10am – 12noon.

Tim’s new magical picture book, inspired by his hit song from the acclaimed and multi-award-winning Matilda the Musical, is illustrated by Steve Antony, an internationally published, award-winning author and illustrator. It imagines life from a child’s viewpoint, with all the humour and poignancy of the song.

This Australian edition includes a bonus download of Tim performing the song.

The event is not ticketed; you can just turn up and join the line to meet Tim and get your books signed. He’ll be bringing a trusty pen and his ever winning smile.

If you’re not able to make it to this event, there are several places to buy the book online.
The UK edition publication details have already been announced here.
There will be another announcement soon to reveal the cover of the US edition which Scholastic US will be publishing in 2018.

This month, Tim will receive the Qantas Orry-Kelly Award at this year’s Australians in Film Awards!

The award celebrates an Australian who has contributed to Australia’s national identity and created opportunities and inspiration for other Australians internationally.

Tim: “It is a huge thrill to be acknowledged by Australians in Film. When my family and I moved to LA from London, the organization played a big role in helping us connect to the brilliant community of Aussies living and working here. In a town as brutal as Hollywood, these connections have been vital to our survival. To now be honored by AiF for my various (and often not particularly conventional) efforts is just incredibly lovely.” broadwayworld.com

The sixth annual Australians in Film Awards will be held on Wednesday, 18th October at Neuehouse Hollywood, hosted by actor Patrick Brammall.
