Rachael Treasure (pictured), an iconic Australian author, will be launching her new book ‘Cleanskin Cowgirls’ at the Henty Machinery Field Days this year.
Although the official release date isn’t until October 1, Ms Treasure said they will be ‘sneaking out the first copies in Henty’.
“I love that I can release the book in Henty,” Ms Treasure said.
“It’s not an anonymous city launch – I am delivering the book to the readers who have been following me for years.”
Her latest book is set in the town of Culvert, a fictional wheat growing area, that is dealing with typical country issues like the drought and cost of running farms.
The two girls in the book take of leaving the boys they love behind who are working on developing a biofuel from sewage.
“People think I only write about outback romance but underneath this plot is a subplot on renewable energy,” Ms Treasure said.
“There are also plenty of poo jokes.”
Ms Treasure will be kicking off her tour in Henty when she arrives here from Southern Tasmania with her nine-year-old son, Charlie and friend Heidi along for the ride.
Aside from her passion for writing Ms Treasure loves attending farming field days.
“I go to the Ag Field days in Tas each year,” Ms Treasure said.
“I can’t wait to compare it to the Henty Machinery Field days; I imagine the equipment will be a lot bigger compared to Tassie.”
Next week the Eastern Riverina Chronicle will be giving two lucky readers the opportunity to win a copy of Ms Treasure’s new book, ‘Cleanskin Cowgirls’.
Ms Treasure will be at the Henty Machinery Field Days from September 23 to 25.
