Hearing from those who write books for those who canít
Redland City Council operates seven libraries and a mobile library that residents of all ages enjoy. They offer a wide range of reading, cultural and educational resources, including presentations from authors, both local and national.

I'm a big fan of the Author-in-Action events. The diverse range of authors has always proved interesting regardless of whether or not I've read any of their books. Here are some up and coming talks from authors at libraries within the Redlands.

On Saturday, 27th of July, at 2pm Jill Baker will be chatting about her latest book, The Horns: Book 1 in The Zambezi Trilogy. Ms Baker spent her childhood in Zimbabwe before moving to London for schooling. The Horns is a deeply personal account of her early life and growing up with her friends, three Matebele boys.

Despite moving to Australia in 1983, the author retained her South African ties, and in 2005 was awarded the Order of Australia for her work assisting South African farmers. Ms Baker will be appearing at the Cleveland Library, on the corner of Bloomfield and Middle Streets, Cleveland.

On Friday, 2nd of August, between 10am and 11am, Vicki Bennett will be presenting her new book at the Victoria Point Library, at 7-15 Bunker Road, Victoria Point.

Two Pennies eventuated after Ms Bennett's father placed two pennies in her hand and asked her to take them to the Victoria School in Villers Bretonneux in France: a school destroyed by enemy fire in World War 1 and rebuilt by a children's Penny Drive.

Both these events are free though bookings are essential. Go here for more details.

Books will be available for purchase on the day. I'm already thinking that a book signed by the author would make a great Christmas gift.
