Coming home to the country author to visit Southern Downs libraries
Southern Downs libraries are pleased to welcome Australian author Jenn McLeod to the region.
Jenn McLeod hit bestseller status when she was 53 with her debut novel House for all Seasons.
With her Seasons Collection of four novels already adored by readers in her home country, she released her fifth novel in April 2018 which was distributed worldwide. Best described as heart-warming tales of Australian country life, friendship, family, love and contemporary issues, readers who enjoy family and friendship stories in the style of Monica McInerney, Maeve Binchy and Liz Byrski, will enjoy Jenn’s small town stories.
In addition to her novels, Jenn is published in short story form and in industry magazines, maintains her own blog, and was a contributing author to the Australian Literature Review’s ‘Novel Writing in Australia’ monthly blog education series.
Jenn’s author talks blend amusing anecdotes and facts. She discusses both the inspiration for her stories and the process of getting a book from her head and onto the shelves, including how she turned a rock into a book. Whether you are an avid reader or an aspiring author, you will walk away from Jenn’s author talk with a greater appreciation of the book’s journey.
This free event will take place at the Warwick Library, 10:30am and the Stanthorpe Library, 2:30pm, on Thursday 28th June. Please note that books are essential. A light morning and afternoon tea will be provided.
