Burdekin residents are being offered the chance to meet celebrated country author Nicole Alexander later this month.
Ms Alexander will be at the Burdekin Library from 3pm to 4pm on Wednesday, September 26, for a meet and greet at which tea and coffee will be provided.
Residents also will have the chance to attend a literary dinner to be held at the Ayr Travellers Motel on Wednesday night from 6pm.
Burdekin Library Manager John Scott said the literary dinner would include presentations from Nicole Alexander and local children’s author Tania Cox.
“People wanting to attend the literary dinner are asked to reserve their place no later than Wednesday, September 19, by calling the library on 4783 9970,” he said.
“Those attending will be selecting their meal from the Motel menu and all food and drinks are at their own cost.”
Mr Scott said Ms Alexander had been described as Australia’s Bush Storyteller.
“As well as being a successful author, Nicole is a full-time working partner and business manager of her family’s property in north-west New South Wales,” he said.
“Her days are spent mustering sheep and inspecting crops, and her nights are spent writing.
“Her first novel, The Bark Cutters, was the highest-selling debut for 2010 and her third novel Absolution Creek, was recently released.”
