AUTHOR Wayne Ellis will visit Stanthorpe Library this month.

Mr Ellis, who wrote Kissing the Black Dog, has been involved in health for more than 25 years.

In his library talk, he will focus on the basic things each person can do, such as how to better absorb water, the powerful effects of breathing and increasing oxygen absorption and the important of a pH balanced alkaline diet.

Mr Ellis believes gratitude is also a vital part of reducing stress.

"You really can improve the quality of your own health when you are informed,” he said.

There is no cost for this event, which will be held at Stanthorpe Library at 2pm on Wednesday, August 23.

A light morning and afternoon tea will be provided.

RSVP by August 21 to Stanthorpe Library on 07 4681 2141.

Southern Downs councillor for the arts Rod Kelly welcomed the talk.

"I encourage all residents with an interest in health and well-being to come along to hear Mr Ellis. It promises to be fantastic,” he said.
