The People’s Library EVENT

Join authors, Heather Ewings (book #48),
Isbel Shapcott (book #60)
and Pearl Maya (book #62)
for this glorious hour of storytelling
in Readings from the North.

From Deloraine and Launceston, these three authors will delight you with readings and anecdotes from their People’s Library books. Storytelling, performance, spoken word followed by lively discussion and good spirits.

In What The Tide Brings, a historian Heather Ewings explores her fascination with myth and folklore through the world of ‘selkies’ and a rupturing sea.

In Reweaving The World, Isabel Shapcott shines new light on a suite of classic folk tales – Hansel and Gretel, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White amongst her tellings.

In The Read Beanie And Other Stories, author Pearl Maya unfolds a collection of short stories that explore the critical junctures of our lives.

Join these three dynamic northern authors for a sweet entry into our first day of public events.
