Meet the Author: Cheryl Adam
Eastern Regional Libraries
1:30 PM WEDNESDAY 26TH APRIL 2023
Cheryl Adam left Australia in the sixties on a one-way ticket and took 17 years to get back. In her luggage was a husband and five children. After her husband's stroke, she took up study while caring for him, and gained a Master of Fine Art. She wrote poetry and became a performance artist, performing in Australia and overseas. Her poetry extended into novels after taking up a writing course at Holmesglen TAFE.
At the age of 74, her first novel "Lillian’s Eden" was published by Spinifex Press. Assisted by Covid-19, it became a trilogy that spanned the fifties and sixties and has gained five-star reviews in The Sydney Herald and Goodreads.
Her books are about the struggles of women, and finding humour, fun, family and friendship amongst a backdrop of family relationships, death, and injustice.
