Event Description

Join us at Sandringham Library to celebrate the release of Kylie Orr's latest novel, "The Eleventh Floor" - we hear the view is a killer... A darkly compelling and twisty psychological drama from the acclaimed author of "Someone Else's Child".

Kylie will be in conversation with R.W.R. McDonald (Rob), an award-winning author and kiwi living in Melbourne with his two daughters and one HarryCat. His debut novel, "The Nancys", won Best First Novel in 2020 Ngaio Marsh Awards,

Will one mother's lie cost another woman her life?

Sleep deprived, struggling and at breaking point, first-time mum Gracie Michaels books one night - alone - at The Maxwell Hotel. A king-size bed all to herself. No demands. With time to recharge she'll be able to return to her family more like the unflappable mother she pretends to be.

Instead, she wakes in a room she doesn't recognise after an encounter with a man who is not her husband. Then she sees something she wishes she hadn't.

'A suspenseful, dark story that drew me in from the first page. The Eleventh Floor is shockingly unexpected with outcomes that feel completely realistic, alongside powerful moments of motherhood, marriage, trust and love, and a seeping sense of dread that will leave you shuddering.' - Jo Dixon, Australian bestselling author of The House of Now and Then

Copies of "The Eleventh Floor" will be available for sale on the night.
