THE SUMMER READ HOLIDAY FUN! AUTHOR ENCOUNTERS


WELCOME TO OUR LIBRARIES We are all looking forward to summer after another hectic year in which the pace of life seems to have gained even greater momentum! For many of us summer is a chance to relax, unwind and recharge the batteries. It provides a glorious opportunity to enjoy some sun, go to the beach, spend time with family and, of course, enjoy some fabulous books. Once again we partner with the State library of Victoria to present the Summer Read which celebrates Victoria as a centre for writing, books and readers. Make sure you visit the library to borrow your favourites from this year’s list and go in the running for some great prizes by recommending another great read. We have some terrific events to inspire you over summer including an absolute highlight, a special author event with acclaimed literary genius, Margaret Drabble. We are also delighted to host the presenter of ABC TV series, ‘Who’s Been Sleeping in My House’, archaeologist Adam Ford. Our Summer program involves plenty of eKnow How activities to help you build up your digital literacy and, as always, you can rely on us to provide some excellent literacybased fun for children and young people over the long summer break from school. The science of spying is the focus for Holiday Fun activities on this occasion. I look forward to seeing you at the library! CR ANDY RICHARDS / CHAIR Geelong Regional Library Corporation

SPECIAL EVENTS

AN EVENING WITH MARGARET DRABBLE Presented in partnership by Geelong Regional Library Corporation, GPAC and The Wheeler Centre

Margaret Drabble is a consummate chronicler of London, which she knows ‘as thoroughly as any novelist has ever known any city’, according to Joyce Carol Oates. Her insightful, affecting novels about the inner lives of conflicted women as they navigate the change-filled terrain of the 1960s onward (including ambition and motherhood), have been much celebrated – and loved. Her eighteenth novel, The Pure Gold Baby, explores single motherhood and disability, through the life of anthropologist Jess, who has an affair with a professor that results in ‘pure gold baby’ Anna, a special needs child who will need Jess’s care for the rest of her life, altering its course forever in complex ways. The Australian declares Drabble – a former editor of the Oxford Companion to English Literature – ‘at the height of her game’ in this ‘adroit’ novel, one that has been compared to her 1965 classic The Millstone.
