Thursday, 24 October 2019 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm

Join Joanna Nell, author of the bestselling The Single Ladies of Jacaranda Retirement Village, for a leisurely lunch as she discusses her follow-up novel The Last Voyage of Mrs Henry Parker.

The Last Voyage of Mrs Henry Parker is a love letter to the memories we make over the course of a lifetime, and how the heart remembers what matters, even when the mind has long forgotten.

Joanna Nell was born in the UK and studied medicine at Cambridge and Oxford universities. Her short fiction has won multiple awards and has been published in various journals and literary anthologies. A former ship's doctor and now a GP with a passion for women's health and care of the elderly, Joanna is drawn to writing character-driven stories for women in their prime, creating young-at-heart characters who are not afraid to break the rules and defy society's expectations of ageing.

Books will be available for purchase on the day provided by Harry Hartog Warringah Mall.

Light lunch and refreshments provided.
