History

Meet Bestselling Author Kelly Rimmer

Bestselling local author, Kelly Rimmer has recently penned, The Warsaw Orphan. The Warsaw Orphan enthralls readers with authentically woven moral dilemmas, complications and unavoidable truths of war.

It is Kelly’s most meticulously researched, compelling and emotional novel to date. Her family history saw her travel to Poland to research, which Kelly still says is ‘one of the best things she has ever done in her life’. She spent several weeks in Poland and her research had a profound affect on her, inspiring her writing, Kelly says the best fiction always contains threads of the personal.

The event will be supported by Collins Booksellers, Orange and books will be available for purchase and signing on the night.
