Former ABC journalist Steve Sailah will discuss his novel A Fatal Tide tomorrow (August 14) from 6.30pm at Hornsby Library.
Set in Gallipoli, it combines elements of mystery with a war story.
On Tuesday (August 19), author Jono Lineen will discuss his true adventure Into the Heart of the Himalayas at Hornsby Library, also at 6.30pm.
By his early 30s Lineen had spent five seasons in the area as a trekking guide, later embarking on his own expedition through Pakistan, Tibet, Indian and Nepal with a 20-kilogram backpack, waterproof jacket and just one pair of boots.
Into the Heart of the Himalayas tells the story of that journey.
