Author talk at The Grove library, Perth

I’m heading back to my reading roots on 4 October, to The Grove Library in Cottesloe, to talk about ‘writing, reading and everything in between’.

I grew up in North Cottesloe in the 1960s and early 70s, and the little old library that was then on the site of the fabulous shiny current Grove Library was my local, visited every Saturday (or was it every second Saturday, with loans for a fortnight?).

It’ll be a thrill to head back there and talk with the wise and wonderful Emily Paull (writer and Westbooks Adult Fiction Specialist).
