Mentone Public Library proudly presents … a new book about to take flight. Meet author and story-teller… Jackie Kerin
All my stories begin as spoken or told stories. For me, the story is connected to the book, like blossom to fruit.
Jackie will talk about how her tale of the first lyrebird, filmed and recorded in display, began as a spoken word piece and evolved into a book for reading. She also wrestles with the desire to share, through story, her passion and concern for the fragility and precious nature of the natural environment without being didactic.
Lyrebird! A True Story. 'Well heavens to betsy! You're no ordinary chook!'
