The Rosie Result Book Tour: Graeme Simsion Hits the Road!

2019 is only a couple of weeks old and already the new year is looking rosie – Don and Rosie, to be precise. The Text Publishing offices are humming with activity and anticipation as we approach publication date for the third and final book in Graeme Simsion’s  globally bestselling Rosie trilogy: The Rosie Result will be available from 5 February in all good bookshops.

Fans of the books will be thrilled to learn that Graeme is about to embark on a ‘Rosie On The Road’ tour, where he will be joined onstage by an incredible host of guest speakers, including clinical psychologist Professor Tony Attwood, autism activist and editor Barb Cook, Autism Spectrum Australia Engagement Officer Thomas Kuzma, award-winning author Sue Lawson, veteran broadcaster Alex Sloan, reader favourite Cass Moriaty and soon-to-be-debut Text YA novelist Kay Kerr. Unmissable. 


As promised, we’ve been busily adding more events to the ‘Rosie on the Road’ tour – and just as well, given that some are already sold out! Please see below for the revised itinerary – new events are in bold.

Graeme will be joined onstage at these new events by an incredible host of guest speakers, from psychiatrist and crime writer Anne Buist, autistic and non-binary author and activist Jeanette Purkis, playwright and director Tom Middleditch, arts critic Tim Byrne, Boomer & Me memoirist Jo Case and The Helpline debut novelist Katherine Collette.
