One City, One Book. "A woman overshadowed by history steps back into the light…." Newcastle and Port Stephens libraries are excited to announce The Birdman's Wife by Melissa Ashley as our One City, One Book summer read. This captivating novel tells the story of Elizabeth Gould: artist, wife, mother and friend. Borrow a copy from your local library, download a copy from the library's eBook collection or listen to the audio book. Newcastle Library is privileged to hold one of Australia's largest collections of Gould's books, courtesy of the Pope Collection. Elizabeth's talent as an artist and natural history illustrator can be seen in Gould's Birds of Australia, which will be on display at Newcastle Library during January. On Wednesday 14 February, join the Big Book Club for a panel discussion led by the author Melissa Ashley.

Presented in partnership with the University of Newcastle School of Creative Industries, this promises to be a very special evening. $8. Bookings essential. Arrive 6pm for a 6:30pm start.
