On Thursday, 2 July, we are absolutely thrilled to be able to host Australia’s grand dame of letters, HELEN GARNER, at our shop! This has been made possible by the extraordinary efforts of the lovely people behind Bluestone Magazine. The evening event, with catering by Port Fairy’s gorgeous Merrijig Inn, was offered to Bluestone subscribers only, and was sold out in 48 hours!
This House of Grief is of particular interest to people living in the south-west of Victoria, as it concerns the murder trial of Robert Farquharson, who drove his car and his three young sons into a dam between Winchelsea and Geelong.
We have a range of Helen Garner’s books now in stock, including This House of Grief, ready for the event! Remember, too, Bluestone subscribers get 10% off all titles!
If you haven’t yet subscribed to Bluestone, it will be in your interest to do so – their subscription rate is more than reasonable – and they have more tricks up their sleeves yet!
