LIBRARY LINES for week beginning 24 February 2020

Our next author visit is on Monday 9 March at 6.30pm with Australian author Annie Seaton. Annie is an Australian author who lives near the beach on the mid-north coast of New South Wales. Each winter, Annie and her husband leave the beach to roam the remote areas of Australia for story ideas and research. Do you think we can convince Annie to use Grenfell in one of her books? Titles such as Kakadu sunset, Daintree, Diamond sky, Whitsunday dawn, Undara and many more. There will be a light supper for a gold coin. Please join us to listen to Annie speak about her books and travels. Annie will be bringing books with her to sell and sign. Everyone is welcome to attend.
