Nimblefoot launches tonight in Byron 

Acclaimed Bangalow author Robert Drewe, who will be featuring at Byron Writers Festival, is having his latest book Nimblefoot launched by Kerry O’Brien at The Book Room at Byron at 6pm tonight. 

 

Local storyteller extraordinaire Jenni Cargill-Strong will tell ‘Tales from Under the Sea’ during the Ken Done ‘Sea Gardens’ exhibition at the Tweed River Art Gallery space in Murwillumbah on Sunday.

From the depths of the ocean to the beaches of Byron Bay, meet the likes of Shelley the Leatherback Turtle and The Mermaid of Byron or hear Kipling’s playful How the Whale got his Throat.

Jenni will perform two 30–40-minute sessions of participative stories and songs for the whole family to enjoy. Suitable for all ages and great for families. The stories, which may vary, will be told at 11.30am and 12.30pm. Entry is by donation.
