Writers in the Library - Stephanie Roberts

You are invited to meet local Mandurah author Stephanie Roberts at the launch of her first book.

Stephanie Roberts

"On the Wings of Autumn"

Thursday 15th November at 2pm

Mandurah Library
331 Pinjarra Road

Unconditional love of a dog can teach humans the lessons of life.

"On the Wings of Autumn" is an unusual journey into relationships both human and animal, with Stephanie learning how those tie together.  It is sometimes fun, sometimes thoughtful and sometimes sad ... a look back at a full life, packed with all those emotions and more.

A must-read for anyone convinced their pets read their mind, offer comfort during trying times and would gladly give up their lives to save ours.
