Our author events, in collaboration with the NSW Public Libraries Association, give you the chance to hear from the authors of the latest books to arrive on our shelves.
On Wednesday 27
October at 6.30pm, Costa Georgiadis will be in conversation with Robyn Syphers
from Camden Libraries with the support of NSW Public Libraries Association.
Gardening for the soul, the soil and the suburbs – from the beloved host of ABC
TV’s Gardening Australia. A generous, joyous, fully illustrated gardening book,
Costa’s World celebrates the life-changing joy of chooks; kids in the garden;
big ideas for small spaces; Costa’s favourite plants; growing the right plants
for your conditions; biodiversity in the soil and garden; the power of
community; the brilliance of bees and pollinators; easy-peasy permaculture; and
much, much more.
Bringing together all of Costa’s gardening and sustainability
knowledge, this is a book for the whole family that reflects Costa’s philosophy
and big-hearted sense of fun.

On Wednesday, 27 October
2021 at 6pm, Tim Ayliffe talks to fellow crime writer, Chris Hammer, about Tim's new book, The Enemy Within.
Former war correspondent John Bailey is
turning his life around after a tragedy with a new job and no booze, but one
thing hasn’t changed. He will still risk everything to get to the truth. When
the body of a man he’s interviewed falls out of the sky, one of his key sources
washes up dead on a beach, and the Federal Police raid his home, he knows he’s
on the right track. Someone is trying to stop Bailey from exposing the rise of
a global white supremacist group, and involved in deadly racist attacks on
Sydney’s streets. Will he get to them before they silence him?
Tim Ayliffe has been
a journalist for more than 20 years and is the Managing Editor of Television
and Video for ABC News and the former Executive Producer of News Breakfast. He
has travelled widely and before joining the ABC he worked in London for British
Sky News. A few years ago he turned his hand to writing global crime thrillers
featuring former foreign correspondent John Bailey. He is the author of The
Greater Good, State of Fear and his latest thriller The Enemy Within was
published in August. Chris Hammer was a political journalist and foreign
correspondent for more than thirty years, before turning to crime writing. Treasure and
Dirt is his latest book.
Two packs of all Tim’s books will go to those who ask the two best questions on the night, thanks to Simon and Schuster. This a free event with thanks to the BAD Sydney Crime Writers Festival. Bookings essential-book your place now!
