The Fix-It Man Booklaunch
Sat. 18 March 2017, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm AEDT
It’s handy having a dad who can fix just about anything. A young girl believes her father is the king of fixing things. But following the death of her mother, she discovers that broken hearts are not as easy to repair as damaged toys and cracked teapots.
Together, she and her father find a way to glue back the pieces of her lives. The Fix-It Man is a poignant picture book that explores how a child can cope with the loss of a parent (in this case, the young girl’s mother). Repairing damaged emotions is not as straightforward as gluing a broken kite back together or sewing up a torn toy.
And grief affects all members of a family, with each responding in their own way to the loss. By sticking with her father, the young girl is able to strengthen her resilience and ability to cope with one of life’s harshest experiences.
Join Nicky and Dimity for the launch of their wonderful picture book The Fix-It Man with Special speaker Georgie Harman, the CEO. of BeyondBlue.
