In Conversation with Maya Linnell – Magpie’s Bend
June 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
From the best selling author of Bottlebrush Creek and Wildflower Ridge, Maya perfectly captures what it means to live in regional Australia and the community spirit that goes along with it.
Bush nurse Lara McIntyre and journalist Toby Paxton are thrust into the limelight when an accident puts the beating heart of their community in jeopardy.
The small country town of Bridgefield can’t manage without their general store and post office, but Lara can’t stomach the idea of out-of-town buyers revamping it with no regard for what the residents want or need. Loyalties are put to the test when locals attempt to save the shop, with personal agendas, old grudges and misunderstandings threatening their best efforts.
Featuring a black-tie ball, a fun run, a magpie called Vegemite and a snake-chasing kelpie called Basil, Magpie’s Bend is a story about rural lives, family love and letting go.
About Maya: This is Maya’s third novel with Allen & Unwin Publishers. Maya is a former country journalist and radio host, blogger for Romance Writers Australia, loves baking up a storm, tending to her rambling garden and raising three little bookworms 🙂
