Book Launch: The Newcomer

The Collective, 139 Elgin Street, Carlton

Join us for the launch of The Newcomer by Laura Elizabeth Woollett, author of Beautiful Revolutionary which was shortlisted for the 2019 Prime Minister’s Literary Awards.

Inspired by a real-life murder on Norfolk Island, a tiny, isolated island off the coast of Australia, The Newcomer examines in close detail the murder of a young woman, Paulina, and the devastating effect the murder has on Paulina’s mother, Judy. The story is told in chapters that alternate perspectives between these two women, and which span the years leading up to Paulina’s death as well as much of Judy’s life after Paulina is killed.

This event is free to attend but bookings are essential.
