Day 2 and more talented authors get my attention. The highlight of the day was undoubtedly the session named “Writing From Home”. Natasha Lester is an author to inspire – confident, articulate, engaging and I am predicting that “A Kiss From Mr Fitzgerald” will be an award winner.
If you get an opportunity to hear Natasha Lester speak at a book launch/festival or the like – do! It is a pleasure to listen to Natasha read from her novel – a wonderful presenter! Again Rosemary Sayer was the perfect facilitator.
What more could you want? A free session! Today’s free session (yes there are usually free session on the lunch tome breaks) featured Dr Liz Byrski and Rachel Robertson discussing the book they edited – Purple Prose – a collection of fifteen works of non fiction by Australian women writers.
So may great sessions today, so many great authors/editors/presenters/facilitators … Andrew Daddo, Jane Monk, Mark Dapin, Kirsty McKenzie, Loretta Hill, Gretel Killeen and last but not least Bernice Barry.
Bernice Barry’s session – “Flowers at Home” put the spotlight on Berncie’s new release “Georgiana Molloy -The Mind That Shines.” An exquisitely produced book (the cover art is award winning) and meticulously researched, this is another book to add to your TBR.
There was something for everyone again today!
