For immediate release

Richie Mccaw Book Signing Sessions

All Blacks captain Richie McCaw will be doing a number of book signing sessions in Wellington and Christchurch in December to help promote his bestselling biography The Open Side ($49.99 RRP, Hodder Moa).

Since going on sale in October the book has become New Zealand’s biggest-selling sports biography, surpassing the previous record for Colin Meads’ 1974 title, Colin Meads All Black.

Publishers Hachette NZ sold out of their first print run in less than 36 hours and sales have continued to soar with the book tipped to be New Zealand’s number one bestseller for Christmas.

Those wanting an extra special copy to go under the Christmas tree shouldn’t miss the chance to get it signed by the man himself. Richie will be appearing at stores in Wellington on Saturday 8 December and Christchurch on Sunday 9 December.

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus
