21 April 2015 Local Author Book Launch

Author of the successful ‘Seasons Collection’, Jenn J McLeod, will launch her third novel in the series ‘Season of Shadow and Light’ at the Harry Bailey Memorial Library on Wednesday April 29.

 

“My stories are about small towns with big hearts and all the quirky, lovable Aussie characters readers enjoy,” says Jenn.

 

“They are contemporary stories that embrace life, love and second chances as characters reconnect with, or sometimes discover, the country roots that run deep.”
 

‘Season of Shadow and Light’ is about Paige’s journey. When it seems that everything Paige trusts is beginning to betray her, she leaves her husband at home and sets off on a road trip with six-year-old Matilda and Nana Alice in tow.

 

But stranded amid rising floodwaters, on a detour to the tiny town of Coolabah Tree Gully, Paige discovers the greatest betrayal of all happened there twenty years earlier –and someone knows that truth.

 

The event has been organised in conjunction with the Book Warehouse and signed copies of the new book will be available for purchase on the night.

 

The evening will begin with refreshments at 5:30pm with the official launch beginning at 6pm.

 

Book online via library.bookings@chcc.nsw.gov.au or call 6648 4900 to secure your place.
