Introducing Di Morrissey for Eastern Regional Libraries

By November 9, 2010November 17th, 2010No Comments

Eastern Regional Libraries is a cooperative formed between the Cities of Maroondah, Knox and the Shire of Yarra Ranges and operates libraries within these council areas.

In addition to delivering library services, Eastern Regional Libraries holds ongoing community events introducing literary functions throughout each of the municipalities. This morning I had the pleasure of introducing renowned author Di Morrressey who spoke at the Karralyka Centre about her background and her career as an author.

Di discussed her life growing up in remote New South Wales, as well as her travels and introduction into television and the media. Throughout Di’s life she maintained a passion for writing and this developed into a career as an author, with Di focusing on Australian based stories.

Both Ringwood and Croydon Libraries are major libraries within Melbourne and it is great to see authors supporting literature within Maroondah.
