Literature Lakeside with Kate Holden

By June 28, 2009No Comments

Literature Lakeside is a community event organised through Eastern Regional Libraries in conjunction with Lakeside Cafe in Ringwood. The event features an author who discusses their books and writing backgrounds, as well as brunch at Lakeside Cafe.

This morning’s Literature Lakeside featured Kate Holden, a new writer who recently wrote her first book ‘In My Skin’ and was awarded the prestigious Judy Duffy Award for literary excellence.

In My Skin, retells Kate’s personal experiences with addiction and life on the streets. Kate spoke candidly about her experiences as she discussed her background and motivation for writing her first book.

Literature Lakeside is part of an ongoing initiative to link libraries with the wider community and to provide a variety of community based literature events. The next Literature Lakeside will be held on the 26th July at 10am and will feature crime writer Shane Moloney.
