Book comes to life

Mother’s Day was given an interesting twist on Sunday, 13 April, as author Anne Winckel visited the Port Lincoln Library to discuss her newly released mystery novel Winddance.

Library services manager Louise Mrdjen said about 20 people attended the talk and Ms Winckel held an “enlightening and engaging”  discussion.

The historically accurate book explores pioneering life on Wedge Island and a camouflaged radar station as part of the novel’s setting.

Mrs Mrdjen said it was “fantastic” to have authors visit the library, and it was a great opportunity for people to learn about and meet the authors of novels.

“It was a very engaging talk – she certainly has done a lot of research,” Mrs Mrdjen said.

“It really brings books alive when you can meet with the authors.”

Ms Winckel said the talk was terrific and she was happy with the number of people at the event.

Winddance can be purchased at Beers Newsagency for $20, and is available for loan from the Port Lincoln Library.
