On the Air and Laughing:
Meekings a Joy to Behold: Reflective Entry
- 11am, Saturday, 27th May 2017
A bundle of joy personified by the beaming presence of Joy Meekings enriched our library for the launch of our seventh series of "An Author for All Seasons" on Saturday, 27th May 2017.
With a smile, a warmth and a humility concealing a life less than ordinary, Joy let it all burst open and run free with poetic antics, radio comedy and a vibrant recount of how she came to be a writer. But enough from us, let's hear from Joy.....
"I was delighted to be asked to participate in Mentone Public Library's series: An Author for All Seasons .
Organised by Julia Reichstein, the series and my talk was launched by City of Kingston councillors Geoff Gledhill and Tamsin Bearsley.

We had a full house on the day so that was a thrill......I was nervous at first but had made sure I knew what I wanted to talk about and had rehearsed at home so was able to, I think, make a good presentation.

Thank you to Julia and Tony for asking me, and to Mentone Public Library for putting on this event each month (May-December).
A great way to promote local writers and the arts......."

If you missed out on seeing Joy, or did not get enough of her from her appearance at Mentone Public Library, be sure to save yourself a seat at Beaumaris Theatre when bookings open at the end of June to see Joy Meekings' radio plays live on stage for one weekend only in July!
