Australian authors Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist will be talking about their bestselling new novel, Two Steps Forward, at Nagambie Library and at the Shepparton RSL on Wednesday, May 23 as part of the High Road to Reading program.
The initiative is organised by the State Library Victoria, in partnership with Public Libraries Victoria Network, bringing authors to Victorian public libraries in participating regional towns.
Graeme Simsion is the internationally bestselling author of The Rosie Project, The Rosie Effect and The Best of Adam Sharp.
Anne Buist is chair of Women’s Mental Health at the University of Melbourne and author of the acclaimed Natalie King thrillers Medea’s Curse, Dangerous to Know and This I Would Kill For.
In Two Steps Forward, Martin and Zoe are both struggling to come to terms with their recent past.
For Zoe, the death of her husband; and for Martin, a messy divorce.
Looking to make a new start, each sets out alone on a journey of midlife renewal, reinvention and rediscovery, walking the ancient Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route.
Mr Simsion and Ms Buist will be speaking on Wednesday, May 23 at Nagambie Library, 352 High St, Nagambie at 3pm, and at the Shepparton RSL, 88 Wyndham St, Shepparton at 7pm.
For the Shepparton talk, please arrive early at 6.30pm to sign into the RSL.
