Australian author Colleen McCullough, 77, has died. She published 25 books, and composed by dictation after arthritis made writing any other way impossible.
Her first book, Tim (1979, filed in the Lennoxville Library under English Adult Fiction), was turned into a film, and her second, The Thorn Birds (1977), became a TV miniseries (you can order that book from another branch via our website).
The library has a solid cross section of her work, just check under her name in Adult Fiction (in both English and French). Her most recent is 2014’s Bittersweet. And you can find The Independence Of Miss Mary Bennet (2008) on the Large Print shelves.
