Event Cancelled: Meet Bestselling Author Nicole Alexander
**Please note this event planned for Wednesday 25 March has been cancelled. Here is the statement from Nicole’s publishers:
“After much consultation with managers across departments, Penguin Random House Australia have made the decision to postpone all author events until further notice, in the interest of the health and well-being of our authors, employees and partners. As with all aspects of this plan, we will continue to monitor this timeframe and keep everyone updated. Thank you.”
Spanning two centuries, Nicole Alexander’s compelling new novel The Cedar Tree is a story of love and faith, destiny and betrayal, in a land as richly diverse as the secrets it keeps. Come along and hear more from this fascinating and successful author.

If you registered for Summer Reading Club it is time to get ready for the Summer Reading Club Wrap Party to be held on Thursday 23 January at Orange City Library from 2pm – 4pm.
You’ve read under shady trees, in handmade forts, and snuggled in bed with your pet. Maybe you’ve swapped favourite books with your friends, read aloud to your granny, or used a recipe to make super-duper-choccorrific fudge cake. You’ve read the map on your family car-trip, and the prices on the gelato menu.
Now, join us at Orange City Library to party down!
…..with friends, yummy food, fun games and activities (and prizes)!
Dress up as your favourite story villain and take your mugshot in the photo booth, pin the book on the bookcase, make a bookmark, and tell us about all of your reading adventures during the holidays.
All ages are welcome, although children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult.
