Hanging out with criminals

Yes, that’s what I’ll be doing at The Press Book House this Saturday from 10.30. I will be looking at photos from the police files in the marvellous book by Peter Doyle. I want to sit quietly and look at all the criminals. Actually its the clothes I’m really interested in and the photographs are so clear, as if they were taken yesterday, that you can see details in the women’s hats, muffs, dresses and shoes.

I’ll also be checking the shelves to see if any poetry books have been sold and enjoying reading and researching away from my house where all my housework waits. Pop in if you are nearby. The Press Book House is at 462 Hunter Street, Newcastle.

About Debbie Robson

Author, booklover, bookcrosser and firm believer in synchronicity. There is no such thing as coincidence! I am currently working on a trilogy set in Sydney and Paris during the 1920s and a screenplay set in Sydney in 1937.
