Youth illustrator event: Wed 30th May at 6:30pm- Greg Rogers, musician, collector of antiques and illustrator! Contact Maureen O'Shea for more info.
Big Book Club Author Event: Thursday 24th May.
The star on tour will be Steven Carroll, author of "The time we have taken". Starting time will be 6:30pm. Drinks and nibbles are available before the author's talk, which will kick off at about 7:30pm.
" A celebration of the rhymes and intricacies of suburban life, the time we have taken is also a meditation on it's limitations. There are moments of a quiet discovery, and public revelation. Carroll achieves a luminous intimacy with his characters, and in this novel revels the richness and complexity of one of the most common Australian experiences- suburban life."
