“At the author talks Annabelle will discuss ‘Nurse of the Outback’ where she tells stories of remote nursing from rural and regional Queensland and New South Wales,” Mayor Whitney said.
“The talks will be a great free community event, with light refreshments being served and Iencourage interested people to contact their local library for more information about attending.
“When Annabelle decided to retire from healthcare to pursue her passion for storytelling it wasn’thard to find inspiration amongst the intrepid and spirited people of regional Australia.
“Annabelle frequently tells the stories of people who live and work in the bush and is wellrespected for her reputation for accuracy, honesty and sensitivity and that enables people to telltheir stories without fear of prejudice or sensationalism,” she said.
