You are warmly invited to the launch of Barbara S Carr’s Anthology of Short Stories.
Join Barbara to launch Shifting the Mind’s Eye – a captivating collection of short stories spanning the 1950s to the present in Aotearoa New Zealand. Perspectives shift and change as themes of relationships, personal values, the impacts of war and death are explored. Barbara Carr’s story-telling pulls us into her characters’ private worlds with depth, insight and humour. Time slices are offered within a truly New Zealand context.
Barbara Carr has lived in Te Tai Tokerau (Northland New Zealand) for 20 years. She has loved writing since her childhood and as an adult has won awards for her short stories. With a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology and History, Barbara is interested in how the past echoes through time. She is a humanist and an environmentalist.
Shifting the Mind’s Eye will be available to purchase for $20. Barbara’s recent historical novel From the Bottom of the Well will also be available for $30. Please bring cash.
In addition, Patricia Brickell – whose painting has been used for the book cover – will exhibit some of her work.
