Meet Author Richard Anderson

You are invited to meet Richard Anderson author of Small Mercies and our One Library One Book community read when he visits the Central West.

Told with enormous heart, Small Mercies is a tender love story. It is a story of a couple who feel they must change to endure, and of the land that is as important as their presence on it.
Richard Anderson is a second-generation farmer from northern New South Wales. He has been running a beef-cattle farm for twenty-five years, but has also worked as a miner and had a stint on the local council. Richard is also the author of two rural-crime novels, Retribution and Boxed, both published by Scribe.
You can meet Small Mercies author Richard Anderson at the following libraries:
Monday 19 April: Blayney Library 11am
Monday 19 April: Molong Library 2.30pm
Tuesday 20 April: Forbes Library 1pm
Tuesday 20 April: Orange City Library 5.30pm
Wednesday 21 April: Cowra Library 2pm
See you there!
