From the bestselling author of Looking for Alibrandi comes this perfectly crafted novel about families, relationships and the true nature of belonging. When Rosie Gennaro first meets Jimmy Hailler, she has walked away from life in Sydney, leaving behind the place on Dalhousie that her father, Seb, painstakingly rebuilt for his family but never saw completed. Two years later, Rosie returns to the house and living there is Martha, whom Seb Gennaro married less than a year after the death of Rosie’s mother. Martha is struggling to fulfil Seb’s dream, while Rosie is coming to terms with new responsibilities. And so begins a stand-off between two women who refuse to move out of the home they both lay claim to. The Place on Dalhousie is a deeply touching love song to messy families and relationships. Caring for aging parents, finding your purpose, grieving, battling depression, and intergenerational living.

How one generation became feminists—by accident
Women over fifty-five are of the generation that changed everything. We didn’t expect to. Or intend to. We weren’t brought up much differently from the women who came before us and we rarely identified as feminists although almost all of us do now. Accidental Feminists is our story. It explores how the world we lived in—with the pill and a regular pay cheque—transformed us and how, almost in spite of ourselves, we revolutionised the world. It is a celebration of grit, adaptability, energy and persistence. It is also a plea for future generations to keep agitating for a better, fairer world.

Every two months we have a different artist exhibit at Bathers’ Pavilion.
Sally Hawthorne is a local (Mosman) artist, sharing a studio at the Middle Head Artists’ Precinct.
Sally has spent many years training and working in an art and design oriented environment. The central theme of Sally’s work is the creation of images that evoke a feeling of tranquillity and nostalgia based on the simplicity, stillness and quietness of everyday objects. Her still life paintings emerge from a focus on details of familiar objects, memory recall, and exploring ways to capture the sensation of nostalgia and moodiness through her use of light and shadow, using a limited palette. She works in oil on canvas, linen and board. More recently Sally is exploring a bolder use of colour as evidenced in this show while still maintaining the search for ‘calm’ in her work.
Sally has exhibited at her studio at the Headland Artists’ Precinct, The Landship Gallery, Riverview Art Show, Martha’s at Castlecrag, The Milk Factory Gallery in Bowral, The Bathers’ Pavilion Gallery at Balmoral, and the Moree Gallery, Moree.
