Meeting 27th March 2023

For our monthly meeting held on 27th March we were lucky enough to have the well-known author Garry Disher as our guest speaker.

Garry has published over 50 highly praised, prize-winning and widely translated books in a range of genres: crime thriller, literary/general novels, short-story collections, young adult/children’s fiction and writers’ hand books.  His growing reputation has seen him tour Germany and the United States where his crime and young adult novels have appeared on best-book-of-the-year lists and won various awards.

Garry spoke about his crime and other novels, including many set on the Mornington Peninsula and he outlined his early years as a fledgling writer through to his current best selling status.  He spoke of how he gets his inspiration, how his books come together and generally gave us a good insight into the world of an author.  Garry very kindly answered numerous questions from the audience and signed copies of his books.

Garry was presented with one of the Society’s own books “Rye a book of Memories” as a thank you.
