FAMILY history is more than just dates of births, deaths and marriages, but how can you make your family history facts engaging for others?
The Kiama Family History Centre is offering a workshop with Noeline Kyle and Lorraine Purcell. The authors will teach you how to organise documents and digital files and give tips on writing your manuscript, publishing and printing.
'Writing your Family History' workshop will be at the Kiama Family History Centre on Saturday, August 25 from 10am to 1pm. It costs $30 a person. Book at the Kiama Family History Centre.
If you are a fan of the psychological thriller you might like to try Nicci French. A pseudonym for husband and wife team Nicci Gerrard and Sean French, I have just enjoyed reading Tuesday's Gone, the second book in the Frieda Klein series following on from Blue Monday.
Psychotherapist Klein thinks she is done with the police but once more DCI Karlsson calls her in to help deal with Michelle, a woman trapped in a world of strange mental disorder who has been living in a flat with a man's decomposing body.
Other stand-alone Nicci French books I've enjoyed include Losing You and The Memory Game.
Other new titles available include The Lower River by Paul Theroux, Close Your Eyes by Iris Johansen and The Daughters of Mars by Tom Keneally. Any of these titles can be reserved online at: www.library.kiama.nsw.gov.au.
