Wednesday, May 24, 2006  Garden expert and children's author to speak at library

Renowned children's author and tropical garden expert Leonie Norrington will be the guest speaker at a free event at the Maleny Library next Wednesday (May 31) at 7:30pm. 

Leonie is the author of a number of books including The Barumbi Kids, The Last Muster, and Reuben's Lost. 

She grew up at the Barunga Aboriginal Community in southern Arnhem Land.  Her writing demonstrates enormous respect for the indigenous people of that area. 

Leonie is also the tropical zone writer for Gardening Australia. She is a third generation tropical gardener who learnt to garden at her grandmother's knee at a time when the only fresh food available in the north, was home-grown.

This free event is part of the Voices on the Coast Literary Festival. To book, please phone the Maleny Library on 5429 6222.
