Meet the authors at library talks

Australian musician and author Mr Dave Turner will hold a "meet the author" event at Woy Woy Library from 2:30pm on April 16.

"Known as the Suburban Boy thanks to his rock hit of the late 1970s, Dave Warner is not only now an engaging raconteur but one of Australia's finest wordsmiths," said Central Coast Council libraries manager Ms Beth Burgess.

She said the event would be an hour of readings, auto-biography, mock heroic poems and original music

Aided by three musicians, Dave would detail his life growing up in the suburbs of the world's most isolated city, and how this shaped a desire for music and an appetite for crime fiction, she said.

"Dave's new book River of Salt, which introduces a whole new genre of surf noir, has just been published.

"Dave will talk about the process of how the idea came about that a young hit man for the Philly mob in 1961, should wind up actually being our crime hero who solves a brutal murder on the other side of the world in northern NSW in 1963.

"Dave will talk about how and why he got interested in crime, and what makes him laugh, cry and shout as he sings his way through his original library of deeply Australian songs written over a span of 40 years," Ms Burgess said.

Bookings can be made through the library.

Reality television celebrity Ms Jackie Gillies will also hold a meet-the-author evening at Woy Woy Library, from 6:15pm on April 5.

Ms Gillies appeared in The Real Housewives of Melbourne and I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!

Ms Gillies is now touring the country with her latest book, Shine It Up.

During the evening, guests will have the opportunity to ask Ms Gillies about her latest book, her business career and her role as a psychic medium.

The event is free but seats are limited and must be booked in advance.

Meanwhile, the next meeting of the Umina Library Book Club will take place at 10:30am on April 3.

"The club meets at the library on the first Wednesday of every month and is always happy to welcome new members," said Ms Burgess.

"Light refreshments will be served at the meeting but please bring your own mug," she said.

Anyone interested in learning more about the club and the titles to be discussed should inquire at Umina Library.
