I did a book talk this morning at Ashburton library. The titles I reviewed were:
Sacred Hearts – Sarah Dunnant
Life Mask – Emma Donoghue
Sarah Thornhill – Kate Grenville
Eona – Alison Goodman
All great reads
I spent the afternoon at the State Library of Victoria.
The above titled book, dated 1839, was just one of the volumes I found myself reading – along with medical journals, sick lists, and general summarys of emigrant voyages.
I love the research side of writing.
I also saw Antoni Jach in the rare books reading room – so all in al, a true literary day.
