Online author events

Kiama Conversation Hour Logo orangeEnjoy an interactive live author experience from the comfort of your own home. Over the next few months Kiama Library, in conjunction with NSW Public Libraries, is presenting a series of free online author events via Zoom. When you sign up to attend you will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the seminar, but you won’t be seen by the speakers or the other participants, so you can relax in your most comfortable clothes and enjoy your favourite beverage while you watch. 

If you're new to Zoom, visit Zoom to get started or contact the library for assistance.
