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.”

Kirsty Manning

From the bestselling author of The Jade Lily comes a thrilling modern-day treasure hunt brimming with family secrets.

Inspired by a true story, The Lost Jewels unfolds an incredible mystery of thievery, sacrifice and hope through the generations of one family. 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. A witty and heartfelt account of the mistakes we all make and how to find the lessons
and laughter along the way.
