SOME of WA’s best comics and authors will be at Maylands Library this month to celebrate National Library and Information Week.
Jon Doust, Annabel Smith, Norman Jorgensen, David Whish-Wilson and Bruce Russell will be sharing anecdotes and discussing the impact of truth, integrity and knowledge on writing at the special May 23 event.
Bayswater mayor Dan Bull said it would be a chance for locals to get a rare insight into life as an author.
“The theme of this year’s Library and Information Week – truth, integrity and knowledge – is relevant in all writing, even fiction, Cr Bull says.
“Particularly now, in an age where we have the ability to fact check anything we read right there on the spot.
“This free event is a great opportunity to learn all about writing as a hobby or in a professional sense, or just have a fun evening out listening to these incredible authors share some of their experiences.”
The event is from 6pm-7.30pm at Maylands Library, 28 Eighth Avenue.
