Library Thursday: Water Under Water - a new Australian novel

Water Under Water, Peter Rix, Random House, 2011

A novel about a father-son relationship, in which the son is a young man with Down syndrome. This new book is due to be launched on 5th June in Sydney. We have not had time to review it yet, but will do so shortly.

The book is for general release through mainstream outlets, but Peter Rix is particularly interested in how families of people with Down syndrome respond to it. He would love to hear your thoughts and comments via the Water Under Water Facebook page, where you will find an opportunity to RSVP to an invitation to the launch, and two short videos in which Peter Rix talks about the book.

Library copies will be available for loan to Down Syndrome NSW members from Monday 6th June, following the launch.
