In Conversation with Paige Toon

Parramatta Library was very proud to host best selling author Paige Toon at Parramatta Town Hall on Tuesday 30th April. Paige was in Sydney to promote her new book If You Could Go Anywhere and have a chat with one of our wonderful librarians all whilst enjoying a sumptuous high tea. A lot of fun was had by all and many books sold – we were very grateful to Penguin Random House for giving us the opportunity to host an author talk with Paige who was a dynamic and engaging speaker. Her many fans brought or bought books for her to sign and commented how much they enjoyed the event and meeting one of their favourite authors. Paige was happy to answer our favourite question – Why do you love libraries?
