  • In case you haven't heard, we have a series of webinars happening with our library service called Library Through the Lens. Find out more about it and book in here: https://www.marion.sa.gov.au/library-through-the-lens

    If you miss out or can't make the webinars, we will be recording some sessions and making them available for you here on the podcast!

    Listen to author Ashley Kalagian Blunt in conversation with Katherine Arguile as she discusses her wonderfully eccentric account of how an exemplary Canadian does her very best to be a better Australian.

    When Ashley persuades her new husband Steve to leave snowy Canada and join her for a year Down Under, she looks forward to an easy transition. After all, Australia’s just Canada with more sunshine and strange animals, right? But they soon discover things aren’t so simple.

    For the sake of her marriage and her happiness, Ashley must find an Australia she can belong to: she decides to travel the country, learn its history, decode its cultural quirks and connect with as many residents as she can meet. How to Be Australian is a remarkable memoir, at once familiar and faraway, that shines a fresh, funny and fascinating light onto the country we think we know.

  • Iain Reid's I'm Thinking of Ending Things blew Paula's mind so she insisted she and Jayne feature it for this month's episode. But does Jayne feel the same way? And does the Netflix movie version live up to the book? The ladies dive into this mind bending and divisive book!
