Dervla McTiernan: What Happened to Nina? [Geelong]


Event Status

Bestselling author Dervla McTiernan comes to Geelong Library to discuss her suspenseful new novel about two families at war, with host J.P. Pomare.

About the Event

Nina and Simon are the perfect couple. Young, fun and deeply in love. Until they leave for a weekend at his family’s cabin in Vermont, and only Simon comes home.

Dervla McTiernan is the critically acclaimed author of five novels, including The Murder Rule, which was a New York Times thriller of the year. Dervla has won multiple prizes, including a Ned Kelly Award, Davitt Awards, a Barry Award, and an International Thriller Writers Award. She is also the author of four novellas, and her audio novella, The Sisters, was a four-week number one bestseller in the United States.

This event will be hosted by J.P. Pomare and will include book sales and an author signing.
