Award winning local author, playwright and poet Mark O’Flynn will be in conversation with Olivia O’Flynn talking about his new book of short stories ‘Dental Tourism‘ at Megalong Books, Leura.
Carmel Bird, one of Australia’s most respected writers, comments on Mark’s new book “The stand-alone stories, ending with a comment on the ‘‘cruelty and craziness’’ of the world, swing confidently between a certain amount of torture and a measure of music, seasoned with some levity and sharp-eyed satire.”

Keith Painter’s new book covers 50 significant events with over 280 illustrations of the ceremonies, the people who took part, the documented records and current views. Some historic photos have never been published before.
Come on a journey from 1899 through to 1991 and learn more about the Blue Mountains and its amazing scenery. Learn of the people who made possible what others said could not be done.
This new book celebrates the outstanding diversity of the native fauna of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. It describes the distribution, abundance, habitat and conservation significance of every mammal, bird, reptile and frog species that has been reliably recorded in the area since European settlement.
The authors hope that this book will encourage a deeper understanding of the wildlife of the Greater Blue Mountains. They further hope that, like us, future generations will have the opportunity to know and be inspired by this magnificent fauna.

New from Kelvin Knox and Eugene Stockton. Before British colonists found a way across the Blue Mountains, thousands of generations of Aboriginal people had lived here before them. They left traces of their life and culture in campsites, rock art, artefacts, axe grinding grooves, scarred trees and stone arrangements. Their heritage includes language, stories, memories and ceremonies. It is for the present generation to wonder at this heritage which binds the past to the present.
