A vibrant new exhibition at Lithgow Library titled “Colour My World” will be on display during March featuring works by Linda Hine and students from her studio and highlighting Linda’s love of colour.

“The diversity of artists in the Lithgow community never fails to impress, so I am looking forward to the latest exhibition in theLlibrary,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Stephen Lesslie.

Colour My World is the latest exhibition to be held in the Library. Linda Hine is a well-known local artist who is part of Artists in Action and opens her studio during the annual arts trail in November each year.  Linda works in various mediums but all of her works reflect her love of colour.

The range of local artists lined up to exhibit in the Library this year is diverse, as are their styles. July and December 2018 are available if any local artists are interested in displaying their work.

Wimmera by Mark Brandi

Small country towns hold their secrets but they often come back to haunt them in ways that are unexpected and sometimes devastating. This well written debut crime novel will keep you wondering about what if, as it moves from the present to the past and back again.

In the summer of 1989 a stranger comes to town whose presence changes the relationship of two best mates; Ben and Fab in ways they never expected. The sinister events have lifelong repercussions for both of them and their lives are forever affected by not just by one horrific crime, but many of the events that took place in the town, and their lives during that time. Their friendship exceeded bounds as each tried to protect the other in the best way they could to the point they were willing to sacrifice everything to protect one another.

This book is not written as a typical crime novel but is an insight into the legacy that crime such as incest; domestic violence and child abuse have, not just on the victims but entire communities.
