Meet Maya Linnell
Bush nurse, Lara McIntyre, and journalist, Toby Paxton, are thrust into the limelight when an accident puts the beating heart of their community in jeopardy.
The small country town of Bridgefield can’t manage without their general store and post office, but Lara can’t stomach the idea of out-of-town buyers revamping it with no regard for what the residents want or need. Loyalties are put to the test as locals attempt to save the shop, with personal agendas, old grudges and misunderstandings threatening their best efforts.
Featuring a black-tie ball, a fun run, a magpie called Vegemite and a snakechasing kelpie called Basil, Maya Linnell’s latest book, Magpie’s Bend is a story about rural lives, family, love and letting go. Join Maya in-conversation with Frances Whiting as they discuss capturing what it means to live in regional Australia and the community spirit that goes along with it.
Books will be available for purchase on the day, or bring your copy from home for Maya to sign.
