There’s plenty of fun to be had at Eurobodalla Libraries this month, with events ranging from a murder-mystery night to creative writing workshops, a cooking demonstration, classic movie screening, and more.
Die laughing at an interactive murder mystery night with the Eaton George Theatre Company on Friday 18 February. Participants will work together at Moruya Library to follow clues, remotely interrogate suspects via Zoom, and uncover who murdered 1923 NSW state tennis champion, Daphne Winningham. Tickets are $25 and include light refreshments.
The following day Narooma Library will host the first of three creative writing workshops with award-winning journalist and communications specialist Kathryn McCarthy. Kathryn, who believes “everyone has a book in them”, will share tips and tricks from her own experiences of writing poetry, short stories, novels, memoirs and creative non-fiction. The free workshops will be held 10am-2pm on Saturday 19 February at Narooma Library, Saturday 26 February at Batemans Bay Library, and Saturday 5 March at Moruya Library.
