Often referred to as The Voice of the Outback, Fleur McDonald is an author and farmer who has used her bestselling novels to not only entertain, but to promote her agricultural community and the issues within it.
Working hard to positively promote and celebrate women on the land, Fleur is currently starting a not-for-profit organisation called Breaking the Silence, designed to support women and children suffering from domestic violence in remote Australia.
Join us for an evening with Fleur as she speaks of the rural experience and how it influences and informs her writing.
Refreshments and Hainault wines will be provided.
Places are limited and bookings are essential.
If you are unable to attend after booking please notify the library.
