Interested to know how one renowned Australian author spins a good yarn?
If so, then you're in luck because much-loved author Jenny Wagner will enlighten guests on the story behind her classic children's book, John Brown, Rose and the Midnight Cat at Caloundra Central Library on Wednesday June 1 from 3:15pm to 4:15pm.
Caloundra City Acting Mayor, Gordon Wallace, said Caloundra Central Library will host Jenny's visit as part of the prestigious Voices on the Coast program - a regional community event which brings some of Australia's finest writers, poets, illustrators and performers to the Sunshine Coast.
"Jenny's visit marks a unique opportunity for Caloundra City's residents and visitors to interact with a celebrated Queensland author," Cr Wallace said.
During her visit, Jenny will not only read John Brown, Rose and the Midnight but also illuminate for guests her inspiration behind it.
