Join local mystery writer Dorothy Johnston and the Queenscliff Library for a walk and talk around some of Queenscliff's most intriguing literary landmarks.

Starting at Hotel Q (the old Royal), walk down Mercer Street to Henry Handel Richardson’s house, continue on to the checkpoint at the bridge leading to Swan Island, then up Gellibrand Street, pausing on the way to look out towards the pilot’s operation centre then past the police station and finish at the Fort.  All of these locations are featured in Dorothy’s novels.

Dorothy Johnston was born in Geelong and now lives in Ocean Grove. She is currently working on a sea-change mystery series set in Queenscliff. The first three titles are Through a Camel’s Eye, The Swan Island Connection and Gerard Hardy’s Misfortune.

Johnston is the author of twelve novels, including a quartet of mysteries set in Canberra, known as the Sandra Mahoney quartet. The first of these, The Trojan Dog, was joint winner ACT Book of the Year.

Two of Johnston’s literary novels, One for the Master and Ruth, have been shortlisted for the Miles Franklin award.

Please note, this event involves moderate walking and participants will need to dress warmly and bring an umbrella.

Dorothy’s books will be available for purchase and signing at the end of the walk.
