WOKE – the first book in The Shibboleth Trilogy

Melbourne Trade Fair and Author Talk July 08 2018

Cosmic Cyclops is going to Melbourne.

I will be heading down to run a booth for Cyclops Press at a NAIDOC Week event  to be held in the ANZ Centre, 833 Collins Street, Docklands, on Tuesday 10 July. The Indigenous Business Trade Fair will start formally with a Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony at 10am and run until about 4pm.  This will be a good opportunity for Melbournites to get some Cyclops Press publications at reduced prices and no postage costs.

That night, around 7pm, I would like to catch up with old friends and anyone interested in learning about Cyclops Press books, and hear a reading from WOKE  – the first volume in the Shibboleth trilogy.  The WOKE book reading went down really well at the Sydney launch held during the Sydney Writers Festival, with Tim Page as MC. Will have to keep you posted on social media about a location, but am currently making enquiries with the Prahran Hotel.

WOKE Sydney book launch and author talk - 4 May 2018 April 20 2018

John Ogden is perhaps best known for the Portraits from a Land Without People anthology, and in Sydney for the Saltwater People and Slightly Dangerous books, but there is a lot more to his story. 
WOKE is the first volume in The Shibboleth Trilogy, and this Sydney launch (4 May 2018) of the book – a guerrilla event held during the Sydney Writers' Festival – will be MC'd by author and war photographer Tim Page. He will dig out the back-story behind Ogden's debut novel. Tim is highly qualified to discuss the book ... he's in it! He needs little introduction, but, for those who missed it, Tim was the inspiration for the Dennis Hopper character in the acclaimed Francis Ford Coppola movie Apocalypse Now.
The author will be available to sign the book, and a generous discount will be given to those who purchase books on the night.

Book Launch. February 05 2018

 You are invited to the launch of John Ogden's debut novel Woke – The Shibboleth Trilogy (Volume One), to be held at Berkelouw Books Mona Vale store on 1 March, 6.30-8.30pm. John is perhaps best known to Sydney readers for his award winning Saltwater People books, but there is a lot more to the story. Come and listen to Gillian May from Berkelouw Books probe John about what he has been up to, and hear a reading from the book. Limited room so please book early.
