Website Author Events Costa Georgiadis.jpgWebsite Author Events Costa_s World.pngOn 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.

Tim Ayliffe

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
