Mount Gambier Library will welcome back bestselling author Meredith Appleyard on Wednesday 8 September 2021.

Mount Gambier Library will welcome back bestselling author Meredith Appleyard on Wednesday 8 September at 7:00pm for the launch of her sixth book ‘All About Ella’.

Meredith’s latest novel is a heart-warming story about family and aging; its inherent vulnerability, trust and loyalty and about standing up for yourself.

Based in South Australia, Meredith has a great following within our community. Her first three novels draw on her nursing experience, whilst her last three have more of a connection to strong women with complex yet relatable situations.
- Acting Library Manager Kristi Brooks.

All About Ella has received fantastic advance reviews, with her print run coinciding with her South Australian tour dates. The story is told from the points of view of three characters, Ella being one of them.

“At 70 years old, Ella is widowed and about to find out that blood is always thicker than water,” Author Meredith Appleyard explains.

“She has been coerced by her children into selling the family home and relegated to the spare room at her son’s house. The family’s attention is fixed more firmly on her money than her ongoing welfare. But Ella has a rebellious streak in her and takes to the road to discover a new life for herself.”

The event is free and bookings are required as spaces are limited. To book, contact Mount Gambier Library on (08) 8721 2540 or book online at www.mountgambier.sa.gov.au/library under ‘Programs and Events’.

“If you enjoy reading popular authors such a Tricia Stringer and Liz Byrski then you will love Meredith Appleyard and we would love to see you at the event,” Ms Brooks said.
