Burnished with Kate Shayler

Come and meet Blue Mountains author, Kate Shayler at Springwood Library on Wednesday, November 28 at 11:30am.

Listen to Kate talk about her newest book, Burnished : Burnside Life Stories which was the winner of the 2012 Global eBook Awards.

Kate grew up in Burnside Children’s Home in Parramatta and went on to write two bestselling books published by Random Australia about her experiences as a ‘homes kid’ and adjusting to life after Burnside.  

Burnished is a collection of stories from other ex-Burnside kids.  It’s a fantastic read and a wonderful insight into recent Australian history and into the lives of some amazing people. 

There is a strong connection with the children from Burnside and the Blue Mountains as many of the children were sent to live in the Mountains during WW2 in order to use the buildings for training purposes for the military.  

Morning tea will be provided.  Register your interest with Library staff at any branch, or by calling 4723 5040.
