Kate Evans joins Big Book Club

The ever-popular Maleny Big Book Club returns to the Maleny Community Centre on Saturday 5 August from 2pm.
This year we are inviting readers to delve into the fascinating world of historical fiction. Readers will be joined by special guest Kate Evans of ABC RN, The Bookshelf.
Readers can choose to read one, two or three historical fiction novels from those selected by our team. As in previous years the afternoon will commence with facilitated small group discussions. Following this, Kate and the team will lead a riveting discussion about historical fiction, drawing on Kate’s wisdom and extensive knowledge gleaned over decades of reading, researching and interviewing. As ever there will be the opportunity for questions, so come armed with all the questions you’ve been burning to ask.
The Book Binder of Jericho, written by acclaimed Australian author Pip Williams whose first novel The Dictionary of Lost Words went on to become a worldwide hit after publication in 2020.
