Author Visit - Rachael Johns @ Toowoomba City Library

Award winning Author Rachael Johns will be at Toowoomba City Library at 5.30pm, Wednesday 8 November. After winning the ABIA for Best General Fiction Book of the Year in 2016 for The Patterson Girls, and the critical and commercial success of The Art of Keeping Secrets, Rachael returns with her most ambitious and emotionally-compelling book yet, The Greatest Gift.

The Greatest Gift is a poignant, heart-warming story of a woman who wants nothing else than to be a mum, and one who never wanted to be a mother. It explores the hot-button topic of egg donation through Rachael’s warm, relatable characters, in the tradition of Monica McInerney and Jodi Picoult.

Bookings are essential - please RSVP by Monday 6 November on 4688 6674

Dymocks Toowoomba will have books available for purchase, for Rachael to sign.


First 5 Forever: Baby Rhyme Time and Story Time 

Babies and young children learn best by listening and interacting with the important adults in their lives during everyday activities – whether that’s talking about what you can see on the way to the park, singing nursery rhymes, pointing out something you both view out the window or learning new words while shopping for groceries. Free Baby Time and Story Time sessions are now being run at various locations throughout Toowoomba. First 5 Forever is an initiative of the Queensland Government and the State Library of Queensland.
