Husband and wife collaborate on book

By Seymour Telegraph

Two of Australia’s most popular authors are visiting Nagambie Library to talk about their bestselling new novel, Two Steps Forward, next week.

Two Steps Forward is the first novel co-authored by husband-and-wife writing team Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist, who will speak in Nagambie as part of the High Road to Reading Program.

Graeme is the author of The Rosie Project, The Rosie Effect and The Best of Adam Sharp, while Anne is 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.

In Two Steps Forward, Martin and Zoe are both struggling to come to terms with their recent past — for Zoe, the death of her husband; and for Martin, 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.

Graeme and Anne will be speaking on Wednesday, May 23 at Nagambie Library, 352 High St at 3pm.

Bookings are essential for the talk. For more information and bookings, phone Nagambie Library on 1300374765 by Friday, May 18.
