Event Description

Join us at Knox Library for an afternoon with author Karen Viggers as she discusses her latest novel, 'Sidelines', a family drama about teen sport and parents living vicariously through their kids. Using adult and teen characters, the story delves into modern life and the ongoing conversation about socially acceptable behaviour from parents on the sidelines of the sporting field. Karen Viggers is a veterinarian, podcaster and retired soccer mum. She is also the author of five internationally bestselling novels, and her books have sold almost a million copies in France. She writes about lighthouses, country towns, pets and wildlife, forests and mountains, and now urban families and junior sport. She likes to delve into challenging issues. She especially likes to write about relationships, and, being a vet, she can’t help sneaking a few animals into her books. Her latest novel, SIDELINES, is a family drama about parents trying to support their kids’ ambitions in sport. But whose success is really at stake here?

Copies of Sidelines will be available for purchase.
