Island Escape Winter Reads

 “There is no friend as loyal as a book.” Earnest Hemmingway

The fire is roaring, the Tassie Pinot Noir poured and the local Dram on ice…all that’s needed now is a great book, a comfy chair and the long Winter’s night ahead is complete!

This year Islington is embracing the cooler months with a celebration of the best Island Winter Reads around. Each month our good friend, local author and proprietor of The Library House, Heather Rose, will select a personal favourite to add to the Islington library, culminating in an exclusive Island Author Dinner in September.

Heather Rose is the award winning Tasmanian author of four novels: White Heart, The Butterfly Man, The River Wife and Finding Serendipity.

Thanks to Fuller’s Bookshop in Hobart, book our Island Escape Winter Reads Package and a personally inscribed copy of Heather’s book of the month will be awaiting you on your pillow. The only decision you have to make is where to put your feet up: bed, bath or fireside!

So, come, join us for a Winter Island Escape and lose yourself in a good book, we’ll take care of the rest.
