One Book One Wagga -
Author Visit - Accidental Aid Worker
Like many of us, Sydney author Sue Liu wanted to help people she'd never met, after the devastating 2004 tsunami in South East Asia.
She took action, beginning with volunteer work in Trincomalee, in the north east of Sri Lanka, where a civil war was raging. This began her 10-year obsession with helping people in need.
Come and hear Sue tell of how she galvanized her community and teamed up with a tour guide and a Catholic priest, all while struggling with her own mid-life crisis, family struggles, and chronic depression.
Oh, and if you're wondering, her enormous Burmese cat (pictured, left) is named Moet. No, we don't know yet if Moet is coming.

The Wagga Wagga Group of the Embroiderers' Guild of NSW (WWEGS to their friends) will be setting up in the library on the first Friday of every month, from 10am - 12noon. And what will they embroider? All sorts of birds, in all sorts of ways, to make for sale at their upcoming exhibition in October, with proceeds going to the Wagga Women's Health Centre.
But wait - here's the best part! WWEGS would like to open this activity up to ANYBODY who wants to join in. They will provide the fabric, needles and threads, and you can stitch a bird yourself, in any shape or form. Feel free to put in a stitch, stuff a wing, attach a feather, or make a whole bird - as much or as little as you want.
