Two of Australia’s most popular and engaging authors, Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist, will talk about their bestselling new novel Two Steps Forward in Shepparton this month.
The husband-and-wife team co-authored the novel, which follows the story of Martin and Zoe who are struggling to come to terms with their recent past.
For Zoe this was the death of her husband and Martin is coming off a messy divorce.
Looking to make a new start, each sets out alone on a journey of midlife renewal, reinvention and rediscovery, walking the ancient Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route in Spain.
The Camino changes you, it’s said.
It’s a chance to find a new version of yourself.
But can these two very different people find each other?
The authors’ talk is part of a tour by State Library Victoria, in partnership with Public Libraries Victoria Network, as a part of the High Road to Reading program.
Simsion is the international bestselling author of The Rosie Project, The Rosie Effect and The Best of Adam Sharp.
Buist is the chair of Women’s Mental Health at the University of Melbourne and author of the acclaimed Natalie King thrillers Medea’s Curse, Dangerous to Know and This I Would Kill For.
Two Steps Forward is a wise, funny and romantic story by the duo.
The writers will visit the region on Wednesday, May 23.
They will be at Nagambie Library, 352 High St, Nagambie, at 3pm and at the Shepparton RSL, 88 Wyndham St, Shepparton, at 6.30pm for a 7pm talk (please sign in at the RSL).
■Bookings are essential for both talks, and need to be made by Friday, May 18.
