I’m really privileged to be asked to speak at the Dalgety Women’s Day in NSW on the 28th of April.
I’m really excited about this, as I know these days for women are so important in building the friendships and camaraderie, that is needed to deal with life of the land.
As farmers we need to be able to celebrate the good seasons with each other, but have network of understanding friends when things turn sour – bad seasons, hail storms that can wreak crops and so on – when dealing with Mother Nature, the list can be endless!
The other reason I’m looking forward to going is purely selfish! I’ve never been to the Snowy River area and I can’t wait to see the mountains and landscape. I’ve dreamed of heading over that way for years – ever since I was captivated by the movie and soundtrack ‘The Man from Snowy River’!
All the booking details are on this poster (Snowy River Shire Council are taking booking from 1st April until the 23rd on 02 64511195) and I’m also running a creative writing workshop in the afternoon, if anyone is interested in attending.
We’re also doing a small book tour (Wagga Wagga and Goulburn), so watch this space for times, dates and more info!
I’m so looking forward to getting out there and meeting some of the people that read my books and women who are farmers! Can’t wait!
