Meet Author Lisa Ireland at Cowra Library

Fri 17 February at 10:30 am - 12:00 pm


Join us at Cowra Library when author Lisa Ireland launches her latest book The One and Only Dolly Jamieson. The book is described as a compelling feel-good novel featuring a proud and gutsy heroine with a truly unbreakable spirit.

This free event will be held on Friday 17 February at 10.30am and is supported by Collins Booksellers.

Local author Kelly Rimmer said “from the glamour of Broadway in the 1960s to the realities of life for the unhoused today, this is a riveting and heartbreaking story of friendship, second chances and hope.”

Author Lisa Ireland was inspired to write the novel due to the shocking rise in the number of homeless women over 60 and a chance meeting with a homeless woman one evening.
