Feisty Fabulous and 50+ Author Talk

Feisty, Fabulous & 50+ is a collection of 21 ‘warts and all’ autobiographical stories of women navigating their way through their 50s and beyond. The stories are inspirational, frank and uplifting as each woman tackles her own set of challenges – from financial security to discrimination to life-threatening illnesses – all recounted with humour, insight and self-depreciation, and demonstrating the under-stated strength and resilience of these fabulous women.

Meet the author of Feisty, Fabulous & 50+, Julie Ankers, at Orange City Library on Monday 8th May at 12.30pm, Forbes Library on Tuesday 9th May at 2pm and Cowra Library on Wednesday 10th May at 2pm.


Good Reading Magazine Online

Use your Central West Libraries Card to read the April edition of Good Reading magazine online. Read the cover story to find out how book editor and author Sara Foster psyched herself up to write the tragic and grisly scenes in her new character-driven crime novel, The Hidden Hours. In a time-hopping new novel, Catherine McKinnon tells the tales of five very different people – from the year 1796 to 2033 – who live on the banks of Lake Illawarra, and in Juliet’s Answer, Glenn Dixon shares his experience of responding to letters from the lovelorn in fair Verona, Italy, as one of Juliet’s secretaries. There’s also lots of fiction, non-fiction and kids’ reviews. Enjoy!
