The Nun’s Story

Margaret Bolton launches Not Another Nun Story

Local author Margaret Bolton launched her debut book, Not Another Nun Story with a record start to the new year program of events. 90 people came along ,which for a local author, launching their debut book, is a remarkable turnout! Even the publisher sold out of their available stock for the night as well. Margaret’s book describes her late teens and early twenties as a nun and how convent life is challenging for an adolescent. The Library has a copy you can check out, or you can buy a copy from Ginninderra Press.

It’s a fine line

For our police, a day at work can be treading a fine line between success and destruction.  Local author and former police officer, Ray Clift, is launching his new book “It’s a Fine Line”, a collection of anecdotes from his crime fighting career, working with those survivors with scars and angels with dirty faces.

Ranging from humour to tense and dangerous situations, “It’s a Fine Line” is an insight into the work of the brave men and women that protect our community.

Ray’s previous work is “The Journey of Hamlin Baylis Wells“, and both titles are published by Ginninderra Press.
