Media releases

The author of 'Secrets Mothers Keep' and 'Wishes For Starlight', Linda J Bettenay will be visiting Margaret River Library on Thursday 15 June.

Linda will talk about her latest book 'The Apple Core Wars' reflecting her passion to tell Australian stories.

Three incredible stories from WA’s past include two soldiers who survive the horrors of POW camps and Nagasaki; a young Aboriginal boy abandoned and found in a chook pen fighting dogs for scraps and  a murder and brutal attack which happened in a family, not spoken about for over 85 years.

As a gifted story teller, Linda will explain how she uses historical fact to weave historical fiction.

You can hear Linda speak at the Margaret River Library from 6pm - 7:30pm on 15 June 2017.

Entry is free and light refreshments will be served.

 A copy of the book will also be for sale on the night.
