Author Talk with Judy Nunn.
Moderator: Suzanne Leal

This is our first year of Central Coast Reads, a program to bring Coasties together to discuss a single book to foster communication and highlight that we are indeed a community of readers.

Judy Nunn’s Khaki Town, set in Townsville in WW2, is the centrepiece of the program. We hope you can join us for a big book club event to hear  the much-loved author Judy talk about the book we have all been reading and to answer the questions we know you have!

We particularly welcome members of our Seniors Connect program.

This session is proudly supported by the NSW Government


Please note: Seating is unallocated. 

Bookseller BOOKFACE will be onsite to sell copies of Judy’s book, which can be signed by Judy after the event.

Judy Nunn

Judy Nunn’s career has been long, illustrious and multifaceted. After combining her internationally successful acting career with scriptwriting for television and radio, Judy decided in the 90s to turn her hand to prose.

Her first three novels, The Glitter Game, Centre Stage and Araluen, set respectively in the worlds of television, theatre and film, became instant bestsellers, and the rest is history, quite literally in fact. She has since developed a love of writing Australian historically-based fiction and her fame as a novelist has spread rapidly throughout Europe where she has been published in English, German, French, Dutch, Czech and Spanish.

Her subsequent bestsellers, Kal, Beneath the Southern Cross, Territory, Pacific, Heritage, Floodtide, Maralinga, Tiger Men, Elianne, Spirits of the Ghan, Sanctuary, Khaki Town and Showtime! confirmed Judy’s position as one of Australia’s leading fiction writers. She has now sold over one million books in Australia alone.

In 2015 Judy was made a Member of the Order of Australia for her “significant service to the performing arts as a scriptwriter and actor of stage and screen, and to literature as an author”.
