Joy Ware – Family History Author Talk


Join us next Thursday 12 September from 2pm at Katoomba Library to hear Joy Ware share about her book, Altnachree: An Irish castle, a family and a man with a passion. This title fits in nicely with our September reading theme – HistoryRead. Part biography, family history and local history all mixed into one, this book tells the story of Joy’s ancestors and their grand family home, Altnachree Castle, which is now an old ruin located in County Tyrone, Ireland.

Joy will be sharing about her journey across Australia, Ireland and even the USA as she chased down the details of her family history for this intriguing book. Find out about the joys and trials of researching your family history, as well as the challenges of the self-publication process.

Copies of Joy’s book will be available for sale on the day. Afternoon tea will be provided.

Bookings are appreciated for this FREE event, contact Katoomba Library on 4780 5750.
