Join local South Perth author Rebecca Higgie as she launches her Fogarty Literary Award winning book, The History of Mischief. South Perth Libraries are proud to have been able to support Rebecca throughout her research, and we look forward to celebrating her incredible achievement. 

About the Book

Following the death of their parents, Jessie and her older sister Kay move to their grandmother’s abandoned house. One night they discover The History of Mischief hidden beneath the floor: it is like no book they have ever seen. But not everything is as it seems, in the book or in her life, and Jessie is determined to find the truth.

About the Author

Rebecca is a writer from Perth. Her whole life has been spent in the company of books, with careers in libraries and universities. Formerly an academic at Curtin University and Brunel University London, she has published research on satire and politics.
Her creative work combines whimsy and play with extensive research and critical insights. Her stories and poems have appeared in publications such as Westerly, Stories of Perth and Visible Ink.

About Words with Wine

Enjoy a glass of wine and a platter while listening to a published author speak about their work and read an excerpt or two. Most authors will share some information about their writing process, how and why they came to write their featured prose or poetry and they may share some interesting or entertaining related trivia. This event series is designed to spotlight a blend of established and emerging authors.

Catering includes one glass of wine per ticket. To help reduce waste, please bring your own water bottle, mug or keep cup for tea/coffee and water. 

Book sales and signing available on the night.
