JB Rowley was at Mentone Library on Saturday 24 September 2011 wearing two hats; one as storyteller and one as author.
JB the author was talking about her novel, Whisper My Secret, to a warm and welcoming audience surrounded by shelves of books. When the moment arose for a little light relief JB the storyteller demonstrated the art of oral storytelling with a telling of A Reason to Beat Your Wifefrom Angela Carter’s Second Book of Fairytales.
The intimate setting of this small library allowed for chat and connection with the audience which
included Councillor Rosemary West from Kingston Council as well as local residents and library volunteers, such as Julia Reichstein who organised the series of monthly talks called An Author for all Seasons.
Fellow storyteller and author of Phar Lap the Wonder Horse, Jackie Kerin, will be entertaining another (or perhaps the same) audience at Mentone on Saturday 26 November 2011.
