That boy, Jack
That Boy, Jack by Janeen Brian

If you could meet and listen to a famous children's author read from her latest book, hear some beautiful Celtic singing and inspirational music, followed with Cornish Tea and refreshments, you'd want to check out this literary event, wouldn't you?

That Boy, Jack
Janeen Brian, local award winning children's author.

Coinciding with its initiative to promote and encourage children's reading, Shakespeare's Books and Coffee Shop is conducting the book launch of That Boy, Jack, the new children's historical novel by award winning children's author Janeen Brian at Immanuel College on Monday, 10 June, 2013.

I'm a Dinosaur by Janeen Brian

Janeen Brian is the author of picture books, short stories, poetry, non-fiction, short fiction and novels for young people and the education market. She has written over 100 stories, plays and articles for Australian and American children's magazines, three scripts for Patch Theatre and 11 scripts for the popular children's TV program Here's Humphrey.

That Boy, Jack is the story of Jack and Gilbert, two best friends who made a promise when they were younger to work in the copper mines, just like their fathers, as is the custom of Cornish immigrants. Now at age twelve, Gilbert is compelled to leave school and earn a wage. Jack fears working underground. He wants to keep his pact, but struggles with his fear, as deep down in his heart he wants to seek another path. Will Jack have the courage to follow his heart, or will he keep his promise to Gilbert?
