It’s a busy bookish couple of weeks coming up in store. First up, Heather will be chatting with crime writer extrordinaire, Dervla McTiernan, about the latest in her Cormac Reilly series, A Good Turn which has just arrived in store. This is the second installment in our Sunday Stories series and Dervla, like Heather Rose our first guest, is a consumate story teller and entertaining talker. So come join us for wine and cheese THIS SUNDAY at 4pm. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased through Trybooking – http://www.trybooking.com/BHPXG.
And then head back to our store the following Wednesday night at 7pm to listen to two marvellous authors, Kirsten Alexander and Kate Murdoch. Kirsten’s second book Riptides starts with a fatal car crash and will have you turning the pages while asking yourself what would I have done? Or escape to France in the 1700s, time of big wigs, fancy dresses and intrigue with Kate Murdoch’s historical romp, The Orange Grove. The event is free and includes a complimentary glass of wine or soft drink. You can RSVP in store, via email – firstname.lastname@example.org, on Facebook or give us a call on 90174748.
We were delighted to see a former speaker at Opening Pages, Ilka Tampke, win Most Underrated Book of the Year with her wonderful book, Songwoman so why not come along on 4 December and meet two wonderful authors because you never know what prize list they might turn up on next year. Favel Parrett who has already won the Dobbie Literary Award and been shortlisted for the Miles Franklin will be talking about her brand new book There Was Still Love, the beautiful story of her grandmother and her twin, one who lives in Australia and the other who lives behind the Iron Curtain. Poetic and full of heart, it will be lovely to hear Favel talk about what writing this book was like for her. Joining her is criminal lawyer and award winning author Sarah Hopkins, with her fascinating page turner, The Subjects. Daniel is sixteen and should be in jail instead he is diverted into a different program with other gifted delinquents. It’s not a jail, a school, or a psych unit. What is it exactly? This is a compelling novel and we are looking to welcoming both these authors to our last Opening Pages for the year. So, come join us on Wednesday 7 December 7pm, and lets raise a glass to 2019 and another great year of reading. RSVP on Facebook, email email@example.com, ring on 90174748 or tell us in-store.
