Literary enthusiasts are relishing the chance to immerse themselves in a series of free reader and writer events that are part of the Write Around Moreton Bay: Winter Feast program.

Run by Moreton Bay Region Libraries until the end of August, the program features talks from award-winning Australian and local authors alongside workshops from industry professionals.

Mayor Peter Flannery says WAMB is a fantastic opportunity to showcase local talent and hear from the best and brightest from across Australia.

“Whether you’re a fan of crime or romance novels, our libraries have pulled together a fabulous series of events with authors like award-winning writer Michael Robotham and Australian journalist Matthew Spencer joining the line up,” he says.

“Our region is also home to amazingly talented local writers and creatives, and it’s great to be able to celebrate their talent and hear more about their latest work.”

Mayor Flannery says local authors including Sean Jacobs, Stella Quinn and Jack Roney will share their stories and speak about their latest books as part of WAMB.
