Being Lucy at Rosetta’s

Nov 15, 2018 | Entertainment, Literature

By Gay Liddington

In 2005 writer Dale Lorna Jacobsen stood among dangling cobwebs and collapsing walls of a hut in the Victorian High Country, trying to imagine what it must have been like living in this dim, smoke-blackened place.

It had been the home of Lucy Strobridge who lived the life of a recluse until she died in 2001, aged 80. Dale returned home to Maleny, but Lucy’s spirit stayed with her.

Ten years of research and writing have produced the novella, Being Lucy. Launching at Rosetta Books by writer and poet, Gay Liddington, Thursday November 15. 5.30 for 6pm. Tickets are $10, and there will be wine and nibbles. Booking essential: reading@rosettabooks.com.au
