Author Event - Maya Linnell - Casterton Library
Monday, June 3, 2019
11:00 AM - 12:00 NOON
Author Event - Maya Linnell
Join local Narrawong author Maya Linnell as she launches her debut novel Wildflower Ridge, a novel about four sisters, one farm and a second chance at following your heart.

Penny McIntyre loves her life as an ambitious city professional, with a marketing team at her fingertips and a promotion just within reach. So when she's floored by a mystery illness, and ordered back to the family farm for three months' rest and recuperation, she is horrified to find her perfect life imploding. Within days, Penny leaves her much-loved job, her live-in boyfriend, and her beloved city apartment.

Maya grew up in a small country town in regional South Australia. She found her feet in journalism, working at a rural newspaper before segueing into public relations, fiction writing and blogging for Romance Writers Australia. Wildflower Ridge gathers inspiration from her rural upbringing and the small communities she has always lived in and loved.

Friday Quiz - Portland Library
Friday, June 21, 2019

Friday Quiz - Portland Library
A quiz is a form of game or mind sport. [definition, Wikipedia]

So why not give your mind a work out and join us for the Friday Quiz – a free, fun night of quiz questions, thought provokers, challenges and conundrums, like:

Q: Are the horns on a cow in front of the ears or behind the ears?

Book a table of 6 or come as you are and team up with us for a chance to take on the competition.

The Friday Quiz is not about smarts, it’s about having fun, making friends, enjoying the cheese and bikkies and competing for humble prizes.
