Have you heard about the Sydney Writers’ Festival? It is an annual literary festival which presents over 300 events, attracting audiences of over 100,000 throughout Sydney and participating suburbs. It brings together writers from various forms and backgrounds, including the best contemporary novelists, writers of cutting edge nonfiction, plus a range of popular personalities and international guests.

Join Sandra in a conversation about love knots and cut ties, old worlds and new beginnings, and the importance of a taking a chance.

The Mayor of Hawkesbury, Councillor Mary Lyons-Buckett said, “This is an event the Hawkesbury community should definitely support as it may lead to other opportunities in the coming years.”

This is a free event with refreshments included. Booking are essential via or call (02) 4560 4460. Copies of Sandra’s book will be available to purchase and to be signed. The event will be held at Hawkesbury Central Library, 300 George Street, Windsor.
