On Tuesday March 18, 6.30pm, I will be chatting with the fascinating Australian author Caroline Overington at Sutherland Library.
This is a free event, but bookings are required, so please register here.
Journalist and editor Caroline Overington has, in a just a few short years, become one of Australia's most beloved authors, and her fiction manages to be incredibly popular and also incredibly well-written.
I first became aware of her a few years ago when I read a piece about her in Good Reading magazine written by my friend Tim Graham. Before it came out Tim, who knows my tastes perfectly, had called me and said, "You really have to read Caroline Overington - I was very impressed by the quality of her writing."
I am very privileged to have been asked by Sutherland Library to conduct this conversation with her, talking especially about her book, a thriller called No Place Like Home.
If you live in Sydney's Southern suburbs, or if you have read and enjoyed Caroline Overington's fiction, I would urge you to come along and hear her talk about her craft, her motivations and her inspirations.
I think it will be a brilliant night.
