Meet best-selling rural fiction author, Maya Linnell, and acclaimed Australian author of Spring Clean for the Peach Queen, Sasha Wasley. Join us for this dual event, to hear both authors chat about their latest releases.

About Paperbark Hill - Maya Linnell

Diana McIntyre and her four boys have had a tough eighteen months but with the love and support of her family, she believes their lives are finally back on track. Diana's dream of starting a flower farm has been the perfect diversion, with an elderly dahlia expert showing her the ropes. She won't have to do this alone.

Locum pharmacist and single dad Ned Gardiner hasn't called Victoria home for years. However his father's death forces Ned to return to the family farm, a place that holds few happy memories for him. Dealing with his estranged mother and sorting his father's affairs, he plans on leaving as soon as possible, but what will it take for Ned to put down roots?

With six children between them, can this pair juggle families, farms and an unlooked-for romance?

About A Caravan Like A Canary - Sasha Wasley

Two road trips. Twenty years apart. Can the memories of a troubled family past finally be put to rest?

When Tara Button’s mother asks her to drive the bright yellow family caravan from one end of the state to the other, it’s her charming but unreliable brother, Zac, who convinces her it’s a good idea. Besides, the road trip might keep Zac out of trouble – and that’s always been a second job for Tara.

Tara doesn’t expect Zac’s enigmatic friend Danh to come along for the ride. Or the bikies that seem to be following them up the coast ...

As they travel along the open road, memories of the Buttons’ last trip in the caravan engulf Tara, while a rediscovered love for the wild, glorious ocean chips away at her reserve. 

Both books will be available for purchase and signing on the night. Cost $5.00 for a ticket, including refreshments. Book and pay online.

Dymocks Joondalup will be selling Danielle's book on the night, and Danielle will be available for book signing, with refreshments available.

We are delighted to welcome back one of our favourite local authors, Rebecca Raisin! Join us to celebrate the release of her brand new book Elodie's Library of Second Chances, as Rebecca chats about her novel and career with journalist Belinda Cipriano.

Tickets are $9 and include light nibbles. The bar will be open to purchase drinks. Doors open at 5.30pm, with a 6.20pm start for the in-conversation. Escape to Honeysuckle Hall and Rebecca's other books will be available for purchase and signing on the night. Please note this event is taking place in the Member's Clubhouse at the golf buildings, NOT the main resort building.

About Elodie's Library of Second Chances
When Elodie applies for the job of librarian in peaceful Willow Grove, she's looking forward to a new start. As the daughter of a media empire, her every move has been watched for years, and she longs to work with the thing she loves most: books. It's a chance to make a real difference too, because she soon realises that there are other people in Willow Grove who might need a fresh start – like the homeless man everyone walks past without seeing, or the divorcée who can't seem to escape her former husband's misdeeds. Together with local journalist Finn, Elodie decides these people have stories that need sharing. What if instead of borrowing books readers could ‘borrow' a person, and hear the life stories of those they've overlooked? But Elodie isn't quite sharing her whole story either. As the story of the library's new success grows, will her own secret be revealed?

An evening of literature and music. Dave Warner is an author, musician and screenwriter. Dave first came to national prominence in 1978 with his gold album, Mug’s Game, and his band Dave Warner’s from the Suburbs. He has been named a Western Australian State Living Treasure and has been inducted into the WAMi Rock’n’Roll of Renown. Dave’s debut novel, City of Light, won the Western Australian Premier’s Book Award and is credited as the first contemporary crime novel published in Western Australia. Dave will discuss his eleventh adult novel After the Flood. The night would not be complete without some signing by Dave accompanied by his guitarist. Dave’s books and music will be available for purchase on the night.

About After the Flood
A violent death by crucifixion near a remote north-west station has Detective Inspector Dan Clement and his Broome police officers disturbed and baffled. Other local incidents – the theft of explosives from a Halls Creek mine site, social justice protests at an abattoir, a break-in at a child-health care clinic – seem mundane by comparison. But as Clement starts to make troubling connections between each crime, he finds himself caught in a terrifying race. In a landmass larger than Western Europe, he must identify and protect an unknown target before it is blown to bits by an invisible enemy.

Cost $5.00. Book and pay online. For further information call 9400 4751. The presentation will run for approximately one hour, and refreshments are provided.
