Another exciting Literary Lunch at the Moruya Waterfront Hotel on November 15th. Join us with award-winning author Inga Simpson to hear about her latest book, Understory. Understory A memoir about staying in one place, told through trees, by the award-winning author of MR WIGG, NEST and WHERE THE TREES WERE.
"The understorey is where I live, alongside these plants and creatures. I tend the forest, stand at the foot of trees and look up, gather what has fallen."
This is the story of a tree-change, of escaping suburban Brisbane for a cottage on ten acres in search of a quiet life. Of establishing a writers retreat shortly before the Global Financial Crisis hit, and of losing just about everything when it did. It is also the story of what the author found there: the beauty of nature and her own path as a writer. Understory is a memoir about staying in one place, told through trees, by the award-winning author of MR WIGG, NEST and WHERE THE TREES WERE. Inga grew up near Grenfell in central west NSW, and has lived in Canberra, Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast hinterland. She leads writing retreats, workshops and mentorships through Olvar Wood and has recently moved to the Eurobodalla Shire. Bookings are essential so get in quick!
