Well-known Australian author Nicole Alexander has once again included Bathurst Library on her NSW tour to promote her latest book.
Nicole is set to discuss her new novel The Last Station, at the library on Wednesday 23 March at 12.30pm. Set during the summer of 1909, The Last Station is a story of a once-prosperous pastoralist, his family and the dying riverboat trade along the Darling River. It is a story of heritage, heartbreak and hope.
Library Manager Patou Clerc said Bathurst is proving a popular destination for the author who regularly includes Bathurst Library on her book tour itineraries. “Nicole Alexander has a talent for creating detailed depictions of early rural life in Australia, a topic that is always well received by Bathurst readers,” Ms Clercsaid. “The Last Station is Nicole’s 11th novel and reflects the large amount of research that goes into each of her works, along with Nicole’s own passion and interest in the Australian landscape.”
Don’t miss this free event to find out what inspired this compelling tale and meet the much-loved author who successfully juggles writing with life on a cattle property in north-west NSW.
Bookings are essential and can be made by calling the library on 6333 6281.
