Book Launch: The Girl in the Mirror

MacLean’s Booksellers
69 Beaumont Street, Newcastle, NSW, 2303

Join MacLean’s Booksellers as we launch local author and poet, Jenny Blackford’s new middle grade children’s novel, ‘The Girl in the Mirror’.


The girls at Maddy’s new school look through her as if she is invisible, and say mean things behind her back. The only person who has tried to talk to her is Gareth, who is new too and is good at maths. Talking to him would mean social death! But then strange, spooky things start happening in the old inner-city terrace that Maddy’s family has moved into…


Jenny Blackford writes poems and stories for people of all ages, usually with a tinge of myth and legend, ancient history, science, or deep time. Over 30 of her short stories and over 50 of her poems have appeared in Australian and international anthologies and Jenny has been a regular contributor to Schools Magazine for many years.

Event is free. RSVP here:
