Wednesday, 27 June 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Join local author Belinda Castles as she discusses her newest dramatic release Bluebottle.

Bluebottle is an incredibly atmospheric and claustrophobic novel set in Bilgola Beach. It follows the Bright family and their father’s obsession with a local missing girl. Going back and forth between the past and present it shows how this obsession shaped the family’s lives.

Gripping and evocative, Bluebottle is a story of a family bound by an inescapable past, from the award-winning author of The River Baptists and Hannah and Emil.

Belinda is a writing teacher and former book editor, and will also talk about reading as a writer, and how at the heart of most writers is a child who just wants to live in books.

Bookings essential from 6 June here.

Books will be available for purchase on the night.
