FRANCES WHITING - The Best Kind of Beautiful

The Best Kind of Beautiful

Frances Whiting is one of Australia's best known and favourite columnists and a great friend to us at Annie's Books. For more than twenty years her weekly Sunday Mail column has engaged readers in the highs, lows and the wonderful of the every day. She is also an award-winning journalist and Senior Feature writer for Q Magazine in the Courier Mail. She has published two collections of her columns: Oh To Be A Marching Girl and That's A Home Run Tiger! and a novel, Walking on Trampolines. Walking on Trampolines has been a bestseller since its publication in 2014, and we know that The Best Kind of Beautiful will see similar success. Frances is a very warm and funny lady. She will be in conversation with her friend of 25 years, local chef and TV personality Sally Bain (Jenyns). Bring a group - it will be great fun!

HEATHER MORRIS "CILKA'S JOURNEY"

Cilkas Journey

First published in Australia and New Zealand, Heather Morris's debut novel, The Tattooist of Auschwitz (2018) continues to top bestseller lists around the world. Based on a true story, it tells the extraordinary tale of Lale Sokolov, who was imprisoned at Auschwitz in 1942 and forced to tattoo numbers onto the arms of thousands of incoming prisoners. At the camp, Sokolov met Gita, and they fell in love.

Readers were introduced to Cilka Klein in The Tattooist. She was Gita's sixteen-year-old friend and she saved Lale's life. Lale called her 'the bravest person he ever knew'. After liberation, the Soviets charged Cilka as a collaborator for sleeping with the enemy and sentenced her to fifteen years hard labor.

Based on extensive research, CILKA'S JOURNEY imagines and recreates the story of this remarkable woman as she travels from Auschwitz-Birkenau to a Soviet gulag, and, finally, to freedom, in a novel of survival, hope, and love. CILKA'S JOURNEY bears witness to the atrocities and violence women endure during wartime. It's also a reminder that, even during the darkest of times, the power of the human spirit to overcome hate and injustice remains strong.

MATTHEW EVANS - "THE COMMONS"

The Commons

We are so thrilled to be welcoming the wonderful Matthew Evans to Peregian Beach Village. We know he will enjoy visiting our community garden, Veggie Village, so decided on this for a casual and relevant venue. Matthew is the author of a number of books, all bestsellers, and this latest one further explores his philosophies of healthy, home grown food.

We all want more air in our lives. Brighter skies, slower days, more time for growing, for cooking, for family. In The Commons, a book inspired by the hit SBS television show Gourmet Farmer, Matthew Evans captures Fat Pig Farm's year of growing, cooking and feasting. It's part how-to, part evocative diary, part cookbook (with more than 100 recipes). It's the perfect inspiration for those about to embark on a simpler life, a handy reference for those who already have done just that, and a vicarious solution for those who just want to dream the dream without leaving home.
