Author talk: Margaret Cameron, Under a Venice Moon

Join us to celebrate Australia Reads‘ Australian Reading Hour on Thursday 9 March, as we welcome local Author Margaret Cameron to talk about her recently published book, Under a Venice Moon.

Margaret grew up in Cannington, Western Australia and it even gets a mention in her book! For many years a career in nursing kept her busy, leaving little time to pursue her interest in travel and writing. Post retirement she has spent part of each year in Venice, exploring the city behind the tourist facade and discovering the obscure tales from Venetian history. Margaret describes her adventures in her book, Under A Venice Moon, telling how the magical floating city has come to feel like home. And how romance was waiting where she least expected to find it …

“Margaret Cameron moves effortlessly between the personal and the big picture issues of politics, history, society and change, writing with an easy anecdotal style, an attractive sense of humour and a sharp eye.” Barbara Robinson, The Canberra Times.
