We had a great crowd at the third annual Readers and Writers Festival supported by the Orange Regional Arts Foundation, History Council of NSW, Collins Booksellers and Better Reading held at the Hotel Canobolas on Friday and Saturday. The Memoir Writing Workshop with Amanda Hampson was motivating, the History Council of NSW storytelling workshop was inspiring and all our speakers were entertaining, engaging and informative – Amanda Hampson, Mitchell Librarian Richard Neville, Annette Janic, Julia Baird, Catherine Bishop and Sofie Laguna.
