Author talks return to Mosman Library.
Mosman Library Service has a bumper offering of author talks over coming weeks.
Dr. Rachel Franks will share her new book An Uncommon Hangman, an intriguing biography of NSW’s longest-serving executioner, on Wednesday 15 June.
Robert ‘Nosey Bob’ Howard used to be a household name, but while the noseless hangman who sparked fear and fascination has since been largely forgotten, his story is vital to understanding attitudes towards capital punishment in Australia.
After years of writing non-fiction, author and journalist Shirley LaPlanche will share her first novel, The Fatal Path, on Monday 20 June, which is set in Sydney with twins, murder, intrigue, romance and a powerful psychological undercurrent which leads to a dramatic climax.
Local author and screenwriter Greg Woodland, author of the 2021 Ned Kelly Award shortlisted The Night Whistler, returns with another rural thriller, The Carnival is Over, featuring Sergeant Mick Goodenough. Bookings for the talk which will be held on Monday 8 August open on Thursday 21 July.
Pre-paid online bookings via events.mosman.nsw.gov.au/author are essential for all author talks with books for sale and signing on the night.
