Dr Angela Robertson, an inspirational author, speaker and workshop facilitator is our next Community Kōrero speaker. She encourages people, regardless of their age and stage, to continually expand their horizons, channel their energy into activities that matter, and enjoy life.  

In her Older and Bolder series of books she shares inspirational short stories about everyday men and women in our community, who range in age from their mid-50s to 101 years.  From all walks of life, with wildly different experiences, they appreciate life is a gift for us to enjoy and are making the most of it. Inspired by their example, whatever our age and circumstances, so can we!

Come in, meet the author, hear about some of the awesome individuals whose stories feature in her books and be encouraged to write your own story for family and friends.

2pm, Sunday 20 February, Elma Turner Library.
