One Book One Wagga 2017 Gala Dinner

Gala Dinner 2017

Wagga’s most inclusive book club is back for 2017!

This year’s novel is Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty. Truly Madly Guilty won the 2016 Goodreads Choice Awards for Best Fiction, and has been shortlisted for the Australian Indie Book Awards.

Liane Moriarty’s other novels Big Little Lies and Truly Madly Guilty reached number one on the New York Times bestseller list in their first week of publication, the first time this has been achieved by an Australian author. During 2014 three of Liane’s novels appeared simultaneously on the NYT bestseller list, making her one of the few authors in the world to have achieved this feat.

Her books have been read by more than six million people worldwide, including one million in Australia and her novels have been translated into thirty-nine languages.

Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon have an option on the film rights to Truly Madly Guilty, following their successful adaption of Liane’s earlier novel Big Little Lies, which premiered on HBO in February 2017.

Copies of Truly Madly Guilty are available for loan now from The Wagga Wagga City Library.
