Spoken and sung word cabaret for Ubud

The count down is on, we are in the home run, the final corrections done, the book goes to print, the singer does her warm ups, checks to see if the venue is finalised, cranks up the publicity machine..


Celebrating 10 years of the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival, Bali, Jan Cornall presents a new book and cabaret of songs, poems and stories, penned during her travels in Indonesia in the past decade. Jan will perform her spoken and sung word cabaret at Bar Luna, during the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival, October 11-15 (date and time of the cabaret to be confirmed soon)!
You can also catch Jan speaking at:

Ok, back to the book.
Archipelagogo is lovingly edited, designed and published by Sarita Newson and team at Saritaksu Editions, Bali.  Jan's first book to be published by Saritaksu, Take Me To Paradise  was launched at UWRF in 2006.  

Here is the front cover, I hope you like it...

and a sneak peek inside..

The thrill of this book is having the chance to work with Jumaadi's paintings. Jumaadi is an Indonesian born artist who graduated with his Master of Fine Arts at the  National Art School in Sydney. He has exhibited his work in Australia, Indonesia, China, Europe, USA and performs his unique puppetry events as well. Jumaadi was the puppeteer in Jan's stage show Take Me To Paradise at OzAsia Festival in 2008.

You can read and view some of the works for the book in earlier posts.
