Launch of Book “More Stories from Patonga”

In 2010 Jennifer Evans collected and edited stories from 30 or so residents of Patonga where they related their memories of their time.  “Stories from Patonga” ranged from people who grew up in Patonga to those who found it later.  The memories of these contributors reflected several eras of Patonga but all reflected their love of the place.  Fortunately the memories were collected before several of the contributors moved on through relocation or departure from life.

The popularity of the first book encouraged Jennifer to collect and edit stories for a second edition with current residents and a similar sociological reflection of the village, Patonga or as many still refer to it Patonga Beach. “More Stories from Patonga” was 3 years in the making.

The launch of the long awaited, ‘More Stories from Patonga’ will occur at the Patonga Progress Hall from 10-12 noon on Easter Saturday (2022) to distribute books and have a chat.  To help us, we are asking that you pre-purchase your books, if possible, by direct deposit. Details can be obtained by emailing

We have printed the new book ‘More Stories from Patonga’, and re-printed the original book ‘Stories from Patonga’ that was released in 2010 with a cost of $25 per book.  Postage can be arranged as your cost.
