A FORMER Wimmera woman returned to the region on Thursday to visit Laharum Primary School.
Author Susie Sarah is launching her fifth children’s book Jumping Jack Jones and a collection of short stories for adults, How To Wash Your Undies.
Ms Sarah collaborated with Halls Gap artist Helen Leach on the books.

She said it was a good opportunity for the pupils.
