Next week – 19 May – 23 May – is Library and Information Week. The theme is “Libraries are for everyone.”
The local regional ALIA group, ALIA Riverina, is partnering with other local organisations – Albury LibraryMuseum, Arts Rutherglen, and Friends of Wodonga Library – in bringing Wendy Harmer to the Albury-Wodonga region for a series of Library Week activities, including a public dinner at which Wendy will be the guest speaker.
Wendy Harmer began her career as a political journalist but is now a well-known comedienne, broadcaster, and writer. She has written six books for adults, two plays, and the libretto for Baz Lurhmann’s Opera Australia production of Lake Lost. Her best-selling children’s book series about Pearlie the Park Fairy are about to be made into a 52-part animated TV series. She was the host of the very recent ABC TV series Stuff.
