On Saturday 9 March, Lithgow Library will welcome back local artist and author Elaine Butler to celebrate the launch of her latest children’s book “Now how, oh how can we get home?”

“Parker the Dog is a very nosey & curious fella. He and his friends are always ready for fun and adventure which always leads to them dressing up for the part!” Inspired by the author’s own dog called Yoda who loves to take his teddies on lots of adventures from time to time.

This book is the fourth adventure in Elaine’s Curious Adventures of Parker the Dog Series. This time Parker and his friends get to visit outer space! Elaine is also busily working on the next adventure or two! This children’s book has been illustrated with colourful hand drawn art by Elaine Butler and edited by Mary Pruyn.

Elaine Butler is an Irish / Australian visual artist and mobile arts educator from Wallerawang. She has worked with a number of schools around Lithgow and offers art classes regularly at the Gang Gang Gallery. Elaine is also a mural artist, qualified in Art Therapy, and a children’s book author & illustrator. Lithgow Library is lucky enough to have had Elaine paint a fabulous mural on the back of the Library building.

Come to the Library on Saturday 9 March at 10.30am to meet Elaine and celebrate her new book.

Elaine’s book will be available for purchase on the day, including a promotional launch discount! No Bookings are required.
