Jane Meredith – Author Talk, Saturday June 13

Circle of Eight Cover 2015 (hi res)Join us at Katoomba Library on Saturday June 13 at 2pm for a little winter magic!

Blue Mountains Libraries present an intriguing author talk from local author and ritualist, Jane Meredith. Jane’s book, The Circle of Eight takes you on a journey into an exciting magical system for developing powerful, transformative rituals based on your relationship with the land. Learn how to process and incorporate the unique conditions of your location—the climate and seasons, flora and fauna, the manifestation of elements, and other important aspects of place. Through explorations of mythic work, invocations, inner discovery, and relationships within magical circles, Jane and her book provide much-needed insight into the experience of local magic, whether you live in a rainforest, a city, or anywhere in between, helping you step into the powerful magic of place and the great Wheel of the Year.

This event is free and includes afternoon tea. Bookings appreciated (02) 4780 5750

The gripping first novel in an explosive new crime series by Tony Parsons.

Plot Summary : Twenty years ago seven rich, privileged students became friends at their exclusive private school, Potter’s Field. Now they have started dying in the most violent way imaginable. Detective Max Wolfe has recently arrived in the Homicide division of London’s West End Central, 27 Savile Row. Soon he is following the bloody trail from the backstreets and bright lights of the city, to the darkest corners of the internet and all the way to the corridors of power. As the bodies pile up, Max finds the killer’s reach getting closer to everything — and everyone — he loves. Soon he is fighting not only for justice, but for his own life.

Review : This is the first of his crime series and is as well written as his other non-crime books. It has a great plot and lots of twists and turns. I look forward to the rest of the crime series.

Free Comic Book Day 2015

Our third Free Comic Book Day was another success, with comics flying out the door at Katoomba Library last Saturday! And a host of comic and pop culture characters walking around the library really brightens up the day.

All of the kids who arrived in costume recieved a lucky dip prize, and the best adults in costume won Megalong Book vouchers. Some of the comic book titles we had to give away this year included: Avengers, Dr Who, Sonic the Hedgehog, TMNT, Divergence…just to name a few! Local comic artist Glenn Misztal spent over two hours busily sketching on demand for patrons, in an effort to raise money for the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund – to help provide valuable assistance to communities affected by the recent NSW Storms. Thank you to everyone who made it to FCBD 2015, making it one to remember! A big thanks also to Kings Comics, Sydney, who provide our free comics each year.
