FLYING THROUGH CLOUDS Literary Events on the North Coast

Michelle Morgan - Saturday, May 06, 2017

Following the Gold Coast launch of Flying through Clouds, I headed south to Lismore Library for a YA Writing Workshop. Lismore was still recovering from a devastating flood but the Library was open for business. It's hard to believe that only a few weeks earlier there had been 1.5 metres of water on the ground floor of the Library. Several keen budding authors turned up for my workshop.

I left Lismore early the following morning and drove to Grafton Library, a beautiful new building with lots of natural light. At this talk, I incorporated a Powerpoint presentation of historical photos to give the audience a feel for Australia in the 1930s, when Flying through Clouds is set.

After spending a relaxing weekend in Coffs Harbour, I headed to Port Macquarie Library for a High Tea literary event, where I talked about my writing process and the challenges of writing historical fiction for young adults. The High Tea event was a great success with more than 20 people attending.

The final venue of the Book Tour was Taree Library for another book launch and author talk, with lots of interest in my research and writing processes.

Many thanks to my host libraries for organising and promoting these events and for your warm welcomes and delicious teas. I hope you all enjoy reading Flying through Clouds!
