Jessie will be appearing in:

Self in the Story

When: Saturday 8 September, 1pm – 2.15pm

Where: LibraryMuseum, Corner of Kiewa and Swift Streets, Albury

Price: $5.00

To what degree is the author present in their fiction or the biographer present in stories of others? Is the self as revealed in memoir any truer than the self that might emerge in other forms of writing? Caroline Baum, Jessie Cole and Robert Hillman get introspective about the ways they see themselves reflected in their various writings.

Finding Words

When: Sunday 9 September, 12pm – 1.15pm

Where: LibraryMuseum, Corner of Kiewa and Swift Streets, Albury

Price: $5.00

Caroline Baum and Jessie Cole’s memoirs recount childhoods that couldn’t be more different. Jessie’s free-range upbringing in the hinterlands of northern NSW contrasts Caroline’s worldly and privileged, if tightly controlled, childhood in England. Both were unconventional, neither idyllic. They talk to Ailsa Piper about family, forgiveness and the importance of writing to understanding their lives and losses.

To book now.
