This House of Grief, Helen Garner:Text $32.99

On the evening of 4 September 2005, Father's Day, Robert Farquharson, a separated husband, was driving his three sons home to their mother, Cindy, when his car left the road and plunged into a dam. The boys, aged ten, seven and two, drowned. Was this an act of revenge or a tragic accident? This is a heartbreaking account of the case and unputdownable book by one of Australia's most admired writers.

A Sun Bookshop will host a very special lunchtime event with Julia Gillard

at the Sun Theatre on October 7th at 12pm for a 12.15 start

Julia Gillard was Prime Minister for three years and three days. Three years and three days of resilience. Three years and three days of changing the nation.

On Wednesday 23rd June 2010, with the government in turmoil, Julia Gillard asked then Prime Minister Kevin Rudd for a leadership ballot. The next day, Julia Gillard became Australia's 27th Prime Minister, and our first female leader. Australia was alive to the historic possibilities. Here was a new approach for a new time. It was to last three extraordinary years.

Here, in her own words, Julia Gillard reveals what life was really like as Australia's first female Prime Minister.

This event is free but we are asking for a gold coin donation to support the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Sandwhiches from the Cornershop will be available on the day but will need to be pre-payed at the Sun Bookshop.

Please Note this event is fully booked out. We ask if anybody who has booked but will not be able to make it on the day to let us know so we can give the place to someone else.
