LINDA J BETTENAY: TELLING AUSTRALIAN STORIES
Linda was born in Roleystone into a pioneering orcharding family who have farmed the land since 1901 and have lived in the area since 1895.
Linda’s stimulus to write her first novel has come from the discovery of an amazing, true story of an event in her husband’s family.
This story was kept secret from the family over the years and was only recently uncovered. Linda’s books are based in our state’s history – steeped in our pioneering past and cover the two world wars. In her talks Linda explains how he uses historical fact to weave historical fiction.
‘Secrets Mothers Keep’, ‘Wishes for Starlight’ and ‘The Apple Core Wars’ make up the ‘Secrets Series’. Linda’s books will be available for sale on the night for $25
Join us Tuesday 26 March at 6pm at the City of Fremantle Library to hear Linda talk about her journey. Meeting to be followed by
our regular convivial supper.
Hope to see you all there.
