St Ives Library to host local author for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea

Published on 17 May 2017

Isolde Martyn will be speaking about her latest novel, Troubadour to raise funds for the Cancer Council.

This month, people around the country will be joining together to have a cuppa for a cause, and St Ives Library is joining in the fun.

The library will host local author Isolde Martyn, who will be speaking about her latest novel, Troubadour, and the creative process of writing, followed by a delicious morning tea with guests.

Martyn writes historical love stories with strong political subplots, and is the winner of the RUBY and RITA (USA) awards.

Troubadour is an adventure set in England and France in 1209 – the time of the Crusades. The novel features all of the battles, action and romance of the Outlander series, wrapped up with the political intrigue and danger of Philippa Gregory’s novels.

Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea raises much needed funds for the Cancer Council every year, with Australians hosting morning tea events around the country.

The event takes place at St Ives Library on Friday 26 May at 10am. Tickets for the event are $10, with proceeds donated to the Cancer Council. Bookings are essential.
