Meet Garry Linnell

Thursday 26 November – 5:30pm


Join Walkley-winning writer Garry Linnell as he discusses his latest work Moonlite.

The tragic love story of an Irish-born preacher who becomes, along with Ned Kelly, one of the nation’s most notorious and celebrated criminals. Charismatic, intelligent and handsome, George Scott is unlike any other bushranger.

Learn how this true and epic tale was brought to life. With meticulous research, previously unpublished material and extensive letters Scott wrote from his death cell.

Moonlite is a brilliant work of non-fiction that reads like a novel.

Register now for this unique event and a link and instructions will be sent to you prior to the discussion.

PLEASE NOTE: You do not need a Zoom account to join, but users on a mobile device (phone or tablet) will need to download the app through the App Store or GooglePlay store. Desktop and laptop users can join via the link.

We look forward to seeing you online!

This event is made possible by Shire of Dardanup Library Services and Public Libraries WA, in partnership with Penguin Random House Publishing.

       

16 Days in WA – Book #1

1. The Handmaid’s Tale

by Margaret Atwood

The Republic of Gilead offers Offred only one function: to breed. If she deviates, she will, like dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness.

But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire – neither Offred’s nor that of the two men on which her future hangs. Brilliantly conceived and executed, this powerful evocation of twenty-first century America gives full rein to Margaret Atwood’s devastating irony, wit and astute perception.
