Out Loud: National Year of Reading event

Next week I'll be doing a 2 hour long (taking a few breaths in between) reading event at the Newcastle Regional Library (Laman St). I'll be reading passages from three of my books: Black Cow (of course), Repulsion Thrust, and Sleep Before Evening.  This is all part of the National Year of Reading and one of many such author events taking place around the country. Out Loud is a week-long celebration of reading with random reads of poetry, stories, newspapers, recipes, plays at local libraries and sites around our cities held through from the 21-27 May. If you happen to be in Newcastle NSW on May the 22nd between 11 and 1, please drop by, listen in and say hello (if you can get a word in edgewise - I might even let you take the podium from me).


  1. Maggie, If I were closer, I'd be there in a heartbeat.

    Do you print out what you're planning to read before hand, memorize it, or something else?

  2. Wouldn't that be fun! Pity there's no telecast (maybe next year...). I just read from the book's themselves.
