Meet authors Pamela Cook and Penelope Janu

Wed 25 October at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Discover a heartwarming collection of five brand-new festive stories from favourite Australian authors about country vets.

Meet two fantastic authors at Forbes Library on Wednesday 25 October at 2pm when they launch their latest book A Country Vet Christmas.

Author Pamela Cook writes women’s fiction set in places you’ll want to escape to and books that will keep you turning the page. Her novels feature tangled family relationships, the ups and downs of friendship, and explore issues like grief and loss, belonging and love. They plan to tug at your heart-strings so if you cry while you’re reading Pamela’s books – her goal is achieved! But don’t worry – there will also be a hopeful ending.

And author Penelope Janu writes stories about clever and adventurous women who don’t mean to fall in love, but do.

Their latest project is A Country Vet Christmas – a heartwarming collection of five brand-new festive stories from favourite Australian authors about country vets, love and small-town Christmas charm.

Come along and meet these fascinating women supported by The Book Dispensary, Forbes.  Forbes Library: Meet authors Pamela Cook and Penelope Janu Tickets, Wed 25/10/2023 at 2:00 pm | Eventbrite
