Have you ever wanted to make your own pasta?

Then let Hilda and Laurie Inglese show you how. Hailing from the Yarra Valley, these first-generation Italians are passionate about their cuisine and passing on the practical skills to make and cook it.

Hilda and Laurie's ancestors migrated from a remote village high in the mountains, east of Rome in the Abruzzi Region.

The pair were instilled with a passion for cooking from a very young age, and to this day remain convinced that the simple ingredients and cooking traditions of their ancestors are the best.

You can catch up with Hilda and Laurie on Thursday, August 31 at 5.30pm.

Book lovers are invited to join us for the launch of Sophie Green’s new novel, The Inaugural Meeting of the Fairvale Ladies Book Club.

If you loved The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society or The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul, then you'll love The Inaugural Meeting of the Fairvale Ladies Book Club.

Five very different women come together in the Northern Territory of the 1970s. Sybil is the matriarch of Fairvale Station.

With her oldest friend, Rita, now living in Alice Springs and working for the Royal Flying Doctor Service, and her English daughter-in-law, Kate, finding it difficult to adjust to life at Fairvale, Sybil comes up with a way to give them all companionship and purpose: they all love to read, and she forms a book club.

Adding to the group are Sallyanne, who lives in Katherine, and Della, a Texan working on the neighbouring station. Books bring them together, but friendship will transform all of their lives.

What better way to celebrate the 10th year of the Riverina Regional Library Book Clubs? Come to Wagga library, enjoy some refreshments, chat with fellow book-lovers, and help launch a brand new novel on August 30 from 5pm.
