A MINI FESTIVAL OF BOOKS AND WRITING IN MILLTHORPE
The beautiful heritage village of Millthorpe has it all – except a bookstore. But for one weekend in May 2018, we will. Twelve Australian authors will be showcasing their books in the quaint and quirky gallery that is the Millthorpe Pop-Up Shop in the heart of the village.
WHO ARE WE? A FABULOUS BUNCH OF COURSE!
Internationally renowned artist, Jo Bertini, will join us with her gorgeous Fieldwork, a celebration of the Australian desert.
US Today bestseller and Central West local, Alissa Callen, will have her latest heart-warming rural romance, The Red Dirt Road, on display.
Another rural favourite and horse-mad author, Pamela Cook, will join us with The Crossroads.
Internationally bestselling and award-winning author, Kate Forsyth, and illustrator, Lorena Carrington, are sending along their sumptuous collection of fairytales, Vasilisa the Wise & Other Tales of Brave Young Women.
Historical author and recent Canberran, G. S. Johnston, will share his dark tale of love and murder in 19th-century France, The Cast of A Hand.
I’ll be there too – yes, me, Kim Kelly – with my latest Australian historical bushranging adventure, Lady Bird & The Fox.
Wonderful, whimsical illustrator, Adam Long, will join us with his latest internationally published work, Seafurrers, a study of cats who circumnavigated the world.
Sydney memoirist, Natalie Lovett, will share her story, Lexie’s Village – A New Kind of Family, an inspiring tale of the gift of life and family.
Melbourne and German-based poet and historical novelist, Adele Ogiér Jones, will send along her latest, The Coffee Palace.
Internationally bestselling author and another lovely local, Kelly Rimmer, will be joining us with her latest sensation, Before I Let You Go.
Lake Macquarie novelist and poet, Linda Visman, will be along with her new young adult title, Thursday’s Child.
And the inimitable Northern Rivers author, Lisa Walker, will be sharing her latest offbeat romantic comedy, Melt, set in Antarctica.
There will be an author or two in the shop at all times across the whole weekend, ready to chat about their work with locals and visitors alike. And of course, all of the above books will be available for purchase – until sold out.
So if you’re out Millthorpe way 24-27 May, do pop in to the pop up and say hi!
