Books at Bars with Tess Woods

If you missed out on tickets to the book launch of Tess Woods' Love and Other Battles, then never fear, we are pleased to announce a second Books at Bars event with Tess!

Fellow local author Sara Foster will be holding an in-conversation with Tess at the Botanica Bar and Bistro, so join us with some friends for a glass of wine or beer, nibbles, author talk and book signing.

Tickets are $8 and include nibbles from food platters.

The event starts at 6.00pm, with a 6.30pm start for the in-conversation. Love and Other Battles, as well as Tess' other books, will be available for purchase and signing on the night.


Three generations of women. Three heartbreaking choices. One unforgettable story.

1969: Free-spirited hippie Jess James has no intention of falling for a soldier ... but perhaps some things are not in our power to stop.

1989: Jess's daughter, Jamie, dreams of a simple life - marriage, children, stability - then she meets a struggling musician and suddenly the future becomes wilder and complex.

2017: When Jamie's daughter, CJ, brings home trouble in the form of the coolest boy at school, the worlds of these three women turn upside down ... and the past returns to haunt them.

Spanning the trauma of the Vietnam War to the bright lights of Nashville, the epidemic of teenage self-harm to the tragedy of incurable illness, Love and Other Battles is the heart-wrenching story of three generations of Australian women, who learn that true love is not always where you seek it.

If you loved The Notebook, this is a novel for you.

Proudly presented by Dymocks Karrinyup.
