Did you know that many nursery rhymes have interesting stories behind them? Lithgow Library is delighted to welcome Blue Mountains author Susan Ackroyd to speak about her book “Rhyme and Reason: English History Through Nursery Rhymes”, on Saturday 2 September from 10.00am to 11.00am.

During her travels through Europe, Susan gained an understanding of the history of nursery rhymes and has chosen 20 favourites to explore further in her book. Susan will talk about and explain where these nursery rhymes originated and why they are still recited today.

Have you ever wondered who Georgie Porgie was? Why the 3 blind mice got chased and who and what Humpty Dumpty is? If you answered YES to any of the above, then make sure you attend this free event. It will be a fascinating talk.

Light refreshments will be available, and you will also have the opportunity to purchase the book from the author. RSVP’s are not necessary, just turn up, enjoy the surroundings and listen to Susan enlighten us all.
