The local community is invited to the launch of a new book which explores Castlemaine’s past.
Butcher Baker His-Story Maker by local poet Tru S. Dowling will be launched outside the Tearooms at the Castlemaine Botanical Gardens today, February 20 at 2.30pm.
The book is the latest offering by Castlemaine based indie publisher Birdfish Books and is a lyric meditation on family and place, a narrative spanning nearly seven decades and three generations of life in Castlemaine.
The day will include a special performance of one of the songs in the book by a local artist and afternoon tea provided by the ‘bakery’ central to the story which still exists today. All are welcome to attend. CovidSafe measures will be in place. See the Mail for more…
