Holly Throsby Goodwood says
Join Kathleen Noonan in-conversation with Holly Throsby for the launch of Holly's debut novel, 'Goodwood' (Allen & Unwin Books).

This event is 6.00pm arrival for a 6.30pm start.

A delightful debut novel of secrets and small town obsessions from Australian singer/guitarist/songwriter, Holly Throsby.

It wasn't just one person who went missing, it was two people. Two very different people. They were there, and then they were gone, as if through a crack in the sky. After that, in a small town like Goodwood, where we had what Nan called 'a high density of acquaintanceship', everything stopped. Or at least it felt that way. The normal feeling of things stopped.

Goodwood is a small town where everyone knows everything about everyone. It's a place where it's impossible to keep a secret.

This is Holly Throsby's debut fiction but she is an accomplished and awarded musician. She's released five solo albums and has been nominated for four ARIA awards. Holly is a council member for the animal protection institute, Voiceless; a regular peer assessor for The Australia Council; and has acted as a judge for The Australian Music Prize. She's active on social media, likes good books, cryptic crosswords, small towns, and dogs. She's also the daughter of the very popular broadcaster, Margaret Throsby.
