Bestselling Australian author, Belinda Alexandra, will speak about her latest novel Southern Ruby on Wednesday 22 February at Chatswood Library on The Concourse.

Alternating in time between the 1950s and the eve of Hurricane Katrina, Southern Ruby is set against the back drop of New Orleans - a city of genteel old houses, seductive night life, Creole culture, voodoo and jazz.

A sweeping story of love, passion, family and honour, it follows the story of two women separated by time and tragedy. Amanda, orphaned as a child and suffering the loss of her beloved grandmother and Ruby, constrained by the expectations of society and carrying a lifetime of secrets that are about to be uncovered.

Belinda Alexandra has sold over half a million copies of her books in Australia alone since the publication of her first novel, White Gardenia. Her other recent novels include Wild Lavender, Tuscan Rose and Sapphire Skies.

Lindfield Bookshop will provide copies of the book for sale and signing at the venue.
