Jock Serong at Great Escape Books (VIC)
Jock Serong

Join Jock Serong at Great Escape Books for a literary lunch with Peter Mares. Come to discuss Jock's heart-stopping political thriller On the Java Ridge and have a fabulous lunch.

A group of Australian surf tourists encounter an asylum-seeker boat in distress, while, back in Canberra, the government is gunning for re-election with a hardline new policy to stop the boats. A breathtaking novel of action and political intrigue from an exciting new novelist.

Jock Serong’s debut novel Quota won the 2015 Ned Kelly Award for Best First Crime Novel. In 2016, The Rules of Backyard Cricket was shortlisted for the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award. On the Java Ridge is his third novel. Jock teaches law and writes feature articles in the surfing media and for publications such as The Guardian and Slow Living. 

Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist at Woollahra Library
Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist

Join Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist in conversation with Jayne Anderson to talk about their funny, wise and romantic new book Two Steps Forward at Woollahra Library.

Zoe, a sometime artist, is from California. Martin, an engineer, is from Yorkshire. Both have ended up in picturesque Cluny, in central France. Both are struggling to come to terms with their recent past and looking to make a new start.

The Camino changes you. It’s a chance to find a new version of yourself. But in the footsteps of pilgrims who have walked the Camino for centuries, can these two very different people find each other?

Two Steps Forward is a novel about renewal—physical, psychological and spiritual. It’s about the challenge of walking a long distance and of working out where you are going. And it’s about what you decide to keep, what you choose to leave behind and what you rediscover on the way.
