Book launched in Christchurch, AGM of Living Economies

Well I have just returned from a trip to Christchurch. Not only did we have another successful occasion where my book was launched but we had two excellent days of the Living Economies AGM. See www.le.org.nz for Living Economies. We have a new person on our board Carolyn Hughes and that is great as she is good value. She is a member of the Motueka Green Dollar group and has read my book. She has business background, particularly trade. And we had a student from Dunedin who is wanting to start a 'scarfie dollar.' We discussed his proposals and gave him advice. However right now most people are fairly preoccupied with the General Election and the results will be known on Saturday. The book launch was at Environment Canterbury, part of the offices of the Regional Council there and attracted almost as many people as the Waikanae one. Several bought the book. I also went out to breakfast with my sister Jill and present at the cafe was a university lecturer and Green Party campaigner who was interested. All sorts of people will read it. And I had an interview with Liz Griffiths who with two others does a radio programme on Plains FM called Earthwatch. It will be on at 10pm on a Wednesday night.

I also have an appointment in November with the marketing manager of the University of New South Wales bookshop. He sells books to sustainability courses.

I am going out to dinner tonight and the host, Souith African Yaj Chetty, has asked me to bring a copy of my book to sell to one of his friends. That is great now that people have read and can recommend the book. I had a lovely email from Miguel Hirota in Japan today. He has just written a book on money too.

He said:
" I'm not sure whether you have already received some feedback from your readers or not, but I find your book to be quite important for the development of complementary currencies in the world. I hope to have more chances to work for this purpose..."
