Canberra author Louise Curtis is creating a twitter “novel”, and launching it with a pirate flashmob at Lyneham shops on Saturday 1 August from 2:00pm. This is a free family event.
Normal-looking crowds will gather outside Tilleys and the second-hand bookshop, then at 2:00pm pirate hats, beards, eyepatches, fake rum and scars will spontaneously appear – along with pirate talk, free lollies, and free short-short stories. At 2:30pm all the pirates will spontaneously vanish, leaving an ordinary group of people and their suspiciously-bulging bags.
Information on the flashmob and Louise Curtis’s twitter tale can be found online at twittertales.wordpress.com or call Louise on 0402 548 978.
