Well-known author Tricia Stringer will discuss her new book Birds of a Feather at a Goulburn Valley Libraries online event tomorrow, at 2 pm.

The new release delves into what makes us the people we are — life experience­s and our relationsh­ips with family and friends.

Ms Stringer is the author of the three bestsellin­g novels — Table for Eight, The Model Wife and The Family Inheritanc­e — as well as three historical books and seven rural romances.

Her novel Queen of the Road won the Romance Writers of Australia Romantic Book of the Year award 2013, with her two other novels Riverboat Point and Between the Vines nominated for the same award in 2015 and 2016 respective­ly.

Ms Stringer has spent most of her life in rural communitie­s and worked for many years as a teacher, librarian, in a bookshop and as an IT co-ordinator.

Her novel writing story started after wanting to write stories to bring history alive for younger readers, which eventually led her to write stories for adults.

The event will be livestream­ed on Zoom with details provided before the event. It will also be available to view on the Goulburn Valley Libraries Facebook page.
