The women have written a book of fictional short stories, all relating to the North Arm Cove area.

“It’s set in 1983 and celebrates the founding of Matilda Bay,” Lee Clayton told News Of The Area.

“It has interesting characters and subplots,” Lee said.

“It’s been a wonderful journey with a few bumps along the way over the last three years of writing.”

The book is called ‘Matilda May Legacy’ and will be launched at the Galleries in the Garden in Marine Drive on Sunday 21 October at 2pm.

Nine artists from the Gallery took part in a competition to create the artwork for the book cover.

Artist, Sylvia Reczek took out the honour.

The community is being invited to the book launch which will be conducted by Fellowship of Australian Writers President, Trevar Langlands.

Lee said, “There will be music, nibbles and champagne to celebrate the launch.”
