a

May 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Wednesday May 26, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Kempsey Library
22 Tozer St
Kempsey, NSW 2440 Australia

Author Meredith Jaffé will be discussing her new book The Dressmakers of Yarrandarrah Prison. Inspired by a true story, The Dressmakers of Yarrandarrah Prison is a poignantly comic story about a men’s prison sewing circle.

Derek’s daughter Debbie is getting married. He’s desperate to be there, but he’s banged up in Yarrandarrah Correctional Centre for embezzling funds from the golf club, and, thanks to his ex-wife, Lorraine, he hasn’t spoken to Debbie in years. He wants to make a grand gesture – to show her how much he loves her. But what? Inspiration strikes while he’s embroidering a cushion at his weekly prison sewing circle – he’ll make her a wedding dress. His fellow stitchers rally around and soon this motley gang of crims is immersed in a joyous whirl of silks, satins and covered buttons.

Bookings essential.
