'Meditations' Colouring book launch

The launch for the 'Meditations' colouring book saw over 70 people come together at Toongabbie Anglican Church, NSW, on 17 October 2015, for colouring, games and afternoon tea. 

'Meditations' was already a success, just weeks after publication, defying expectations by selling out of its first print run of 3000 within the first three weeks of printing. A second print run of 5000 books was ordered on its official release date.

Publisher Cecily Paterson and illustrator Lorien Atwood publicly thanked the growing numbers of colouring enthusiasts and members of the 5500+ strong Facebook group, 'Colouring In Truth', who have made their project so successful, and told of the stories they had heard about how much the Bible verses in artwork have refreshed and helped many people. 

Talented comedian and speaker Hannah Boland MC-ed the event, and music was provided by Merryn Court. The gathering was pleased to hear Cecily Paterson's news that two more Lorien Illustrations books are planned for 2016.
