Best-selling crime fiction author and ex Bathurst local, Petronella McGovern, will visit her hometown next month to launch her new book, The Liars.
This exciting in-conversation event will be held on Tuesday 11 October at 6pm,
hosted by local radio personality Jac Underwood. Bathurst readers will have the
opportunity to hear about Petronella’s experience as a writer and editor for 30 years
and how this, and her childhood growing up on a farm just outside of Bathurst, may
have influenced her writing.
The Liars is a cocktail of family secrets, sinister unsolved disappearances, and a
community at war with itself. Two of Petronella’s previous books – The Good Teacher
and Six Minutes – have been longlisted or shortlisted for various prestigious writing
awards. Six Minutes, her debut book, also reached the Australian best-seller list in
Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing on the night. To secure
your seat, call the library on 6333 6281. For more information about this and other
