Author Anthony Hill Enthralls Audiences in Bega

As part of Bega Valley Shire Library’s National Year of Reading program, visiting author Anthony Hill enthralled his audiences across the Shire’s libraries last month with true-life stories about the war experiences of Australian soldiers. Anthony Hill is an award-winning author of numerous books for young adults, including the well known Soldier Boy. A public talk was held at Bega Library generating discussion on the effect of war on soldiers returning to Australia and how they adapted to ‘normal’ life again. Mr Hill’s visit was part of the Bega Valley Shire Library’s National Year of Reading program and was made possible by funding from the Country Arts Support Program.
