Frankston City Libraries is one of the first library services in Victoria to be hosting virtual author talks with popular authors every week during the forced closure of libraries across the state.

Frankston City Mayor, Sandra Mayer, said it was great to see Frankston City Libraries move their community lounge room online.

“Our libraries have always been the community lounge room and now we’re excited to be bringing our favourite programs and events into your lounge rooms,” said the Mayor.

“It’s exciting to see how many well-known and bestselling authors are choosing Frankston City Libraries and helping us remain connected with our Frankston City community.”

In the summer of 1912, a workman’s pickaxe strikes through the floor of an old tenement house in Cheapside, London, uncovering a cache of unimaginably valuable treasure that quickly disappears again.

Melissa Walsh

Local writer and former Married at First Sight contestant, Melissa Walsh, dishes the dirt on the realities of reality television and her life in her new memoir.

Everybody Deserves a Disaster is the journey of a middle-aged woman who decided to transform her life before it was too late.
