Australian writer Meredith Jaffe will visit Bowral for an author talk about her first book, The Fence.
The writer and book critic had a successful career in recruitment before embracing her passion for writing after the birth of her third child. Now, in an author talk in Bowral hosted by Friends of the Wingecarribee Libraries, she will discuss her first novel. A green-thumbed social satire of suburban neighbourly conflict, there is nothing ‘polite’ about this white-picket drama – a mischievous treat for anyone who’s ever had tricky neighbours.
Meredith joined The Hoopla, an online women’s magazine, and wrote its weekly literary column ‘The Bookshelf’ for four years. She chairs panels, interviews authors and presents workshops for a variety of literary events and writing festivals. She is working on her next novel in between riding her horses and enjoying farm life with her family on the NSW south coast.
Friends of the Wingecarribee Libraries (FOWL) will host the event at the Henrietta Rose Room, Bowral at 10am on January 17. Morning tea will follow, bookings are essential. Admission: $10 FOWL members, $15 non-members. Payment can be made at any of the Wingecarribee Public Libraries.
