1. Movie Screening (Free): The Book Thief (PG)
Monday, September 1st, 2014, 1-3:30pm
I am pretty excited that my local Library is putting on a free movie screening 'The Book Thief', based on the book by Marcus Zusak. I have not read the book or seen the movie before so I am going along to see what it's all about but I can honestly say that I have heard nothing except people giving the book rave reviews.
Based on what I have heard about the book, I can only assume that the movie will be half decent and at the very least, it will be worth a watch. The important part is that it is a free movie screening and the Chermside Library is one of the nicer libraries in and around the Brisbane area. It should prove to be a good little event, perfect for a Monday afternoon.
Michael Robotham lives in Sydney but is published all round the world. His tense psychological thrillers include Lost, The Suspect, The Night Ferry, Shatter, Bleed For Me, The Wreckage, Say You're Sorry and Watching You.
Previously a successful investigative reporter in the UK and Europe, and later a Sunday Times bestselling ghost-writer, Michael's novels have won many admirers including Val McDermid, Peter James and Stephen King.
To meet Michael when he visits Chermside Library as part of the Brisbane Writers Festival make sure you call the Library as soon as possible and register for a place. .
3. Beans and Books: Crime and Mystery
Friday September 19th, 2014, 1:30 – 3pm
This looks to be a really good event, provided there is a decent turnout. Bookings are essential so my advice is to register as soon as possible so you don't miss a place.
I for one, am really looking forward to this event as I can't think of a better way to spend a Friday afternoon. Meeting and talking with new people about crime and mystery books, and the promise of coffee, sounds absolutely marvellous to me.
Crime and mystery books have never been my preferred genre but I am always happy to read a good book, regardless of what it is about.
It is so rare that I get the opportunity to meet new people, particularly ones who read, so I would imagine that it is going to be a very nice treat indeed. If you happen to be free that day and you're in the area, stop in and have a chat and a coffee.
Bookings for all three events are essential - Call Chermside Library on 07 3403 7200
