Authors Heather Morris and Lorraine Smith to present at Latrobe City libraries
Latrobe City Libraries will host two author talks in February, including a return to in-person events.
Best-selling author of 'The Tattooist of Auschwitz' Heather Morris will be back to talk about her latest book, 'Three Sisters', in conversation with writer and journalist Claire Halliday. Warrnambool bookshop owner Lorraine Smith will then discuss her book 'Journey of a Lost Manuscript' about a customer finding a 16th century manuscript between the pages of 'Alice in Wonderland'.
Author Heather Morris will provide an online author talk, she wrote the bestsellers, 'Tattooist of Auschwitz' and 'Cilka's Journey', will be speaking about her latest book, 'Stories of Hope', the story behind her inspirational writing journey
Invitation to the author talks
Latrobe City Mayor Kellie O'Callaghan said author talks were an entertaining and educational experience. "It's always thrilling to hear from authors, either face-to-face or online, as they discuss the books we love and allow us to join the conversation," Cr O'Callaghan said.
"Author talks often feature discourse on a range of themes from the books themselves and broader themes relating to our own lives. Heather Morris writes difficult stories about love, endurance and hope set against the background of the Second World War while Lorraine has written an intriguing tale of a lost parchment; both will offer fascinating insights to their tales."
"We invite all those who have an interest in reading, literature, human nature and captivating storytelling to come along to these events. You can simply sit and listen if that's your preference even if you haven't read the books. No spoilers of course." Cr O'Callaghan said.
