Two Events You Will Love – Coming Up This Week in Canberra

simsion-graeme-2016-credit-rebecca-rocks-microphone-mid-landscape

Next Wednesday (30th November), you are in for a real treat!

Graeme Simsion, author of best-selling book, The Rosie Project, and his wife,  Anne Buist, forensic psychiatrist and author of award nominated psychological thriller, Medea’s Curse will be rocking into Canberra. So, why not join us after work at 5:45pm? You can head on over to the Bookplate cafe and restaurant, where you will enjoy Tapas and a free glass of wine/bubbly. beer etc and mingle with other book lovers  who are there to listen to this dynamic duo discuss their latest books.

Graeme has written a book called The Best of Adam Sharp (which you will love), and Anne’s latest tome is Dangerous to Know – a psychological thriller and page-turner.

If you have ever loved and lost, been betrayed, found a soulmate, or pined for one and in fact if you’ve ever been in love, then Graeme’s latest book is for you! Not only love but music, gets a guernsey in this latest book – he is indeed a masterful storyteller and this latest book will delight you as much as the Rosie stories!

Anne, who is a psychiatrist, and who specialises in infanticide – working with women who kill their children, is of course well equipped to write psychological thrillers. And Dangerous to Know is truly thrilling, exciting and not only that, but one of those books where you won’t guess the ending either. It has all the hallmarks of a damn good read.

But to top it off – these authors are highly entertaining and you will be guaranteed a good time, listening to them speak about their journeys – with a little luck, they may even give us some hints about the new collaborative book project they are currently working on!

You can listen to an interview with them next Tuesday afternoon on ABC666 with Alex Sloan

Cost: $40 + Booking Fee – Further Enquiries: Ph 0431860607
