You are here

Ever felt like you have a book swirling around in your head waiting to be written? Wonder when you finish an amazing book how the author wrote it to make you feel like laughing one minute and crying the next? Ever wondered what research an author needs to undertake to make you say “I remember that”?

Meg McKinlay, author of the newly released book “Catch a Falling Star” will be coming to Esperance on 10 July to answer these questions and more! Meg McKinlay is a Western Australian author of numerous works ranging from picture books and middle grade fiction to poetry for adults.

Meg will be running two free sessions on Wednesday July 10th. A “Meet the Author” session at the Esperance Museum from 11.30 – 1pm will be a book focused talk and will give the opportunity for Meg to talk about her latest book “Catch a Falling Star” as well as her other works. This event will include a light lunch.

Meg will be facilitating a writing workshop on Wednesday evening from 5pm-7.30pm at the Esperance Library, discussing writing tips and encouraging participants to undertake writing exercises. This workshop is targeted to people aged 10+ and does include a light supper. Bookings are appreciated for catering purposes.
