OVER 400 fans of iconic singer and author, Jimmy Barnes lined up around the block to get the chance to have their books signed at Collins Booksellers in Shepparton last Friday, with the superstar delighting all with his generous approach.

Collins Booksellers Shepparton business owners, Helen and Joe Sofra were thrilled by the turnout as were Harper Collins and Jimmy himself. If you haven’t yet had the chance to read Jimmy’s life story, head down to Collins Booksellers in Shepparton and pick up Working Class Boy and his latest release Working Class Man.

Helen said, “The whole day was a real success and Jimmy generously ended up staying 20 minutes longer to ensure each and every fan had their book signed and their photo taken with him.

“At any book signing what we aim for is to ensure the author is happy, the fans are happy and that the publishers are pleased. On Friday everyone left on a real high and it was a great success for all involved.”
