About The Event

Wrapped in the colourful culture of a boat-access-only community that prides itself on taking care of its own, Sleepless in Stringybark Bay celebrates having a go at any age, revels in the magic of the bush, and explores the fragility of relationships, old and young. A page-turning, mysterious, funny and delightful story!

Susan Duncan enjoyed a 25-year career spanning radio, newspaper and magazine journalism, including editing two of Australia's top selling women's magazines, The Australian Women's Weekly and New Idea. She has published two bestselling memoirs, Salvation Creek and its sequel, The House at Salvation Creek, and two novels, The Briny Café and Gone Fishing.

Suzanne Leal is the author of novels The Watchful Wife, The Deceptions, The Teacher's Secret, Border Street and her children's novel Running With Ivan.
