MARKING A NEW CHAPTER
Omakau author Janette Cannell is excited for the launch of her first picture book, Freddy and the Bantam Sisters. Cannell was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2001, which changed the course of her life. With a passion for writing and a love of nature since her teens, she has combined the two to begin a new chapter in her life. The book launch is at the Alexandra Public Library on Thursday at 3.30pm. The book can be purchased online at janettecannell.com or in hard copy at the launch.
