Kurri Kurri Library is pleased to welcome local author Amanda Blandford for an author talk, book signing and refreshments at 5.30pm on Tuesday 3 May 2016.

Writing under the pen name ‘Liberty Hunter’, Amanda’s book Denial is a River in Egypt, tells the story of a mother after her daughter is diagnosed with Autism.  

At the time of Amanda’s experience, there were no support groups and very little information available which led to a feeling of isolation and helplessness.  

“The Nile is the only river that runs in the opposite direction, and that is what Autism is like”, Amanda said.  

‘Liberty’ an advocate and guest speaker for Autism support groups, is pleased to be sharing her story in her local area.  

Autism is a lifelong developmental condition that affects, among other things, the way an individual will relate to their environment and with other people.  

Amanda will speak about her experience with Autism, her book and offer an opportunity for the audience to ask questions.  

Everyone is welcome, but attendees are encouraged to make a booking.  

Books will be available for optional purchase and signing.  

For more information please contact Kurri Kurri Library on 4937 1638 or visit the library at 251 Lang Street to make a booking in person.
