Time & Date



Erina Library
The Hive, Erina Fair
Erina, NSW 2250


Join us at Erina Library for an 'In Conversation' event with debut author, Kathryn Hind.

Kathryn is the inaugural winner of the Peguin Literary Prize, which was 'established to find, nuture and develop new Australian voices'. Her novel 'Hitch' is a raw novel exploring grief, trauma, consent and the realities of womanhood. 'Hitch' tells the story of the grieving Amelia who hitchikes across Australia.

Hitch is an account of a young woman finding her feet in a world that consistently questions her right to joy and agency within it. It implores us to accept a person’s right to find their own way.

Kathryn Hind was born in Canberra and has now returned there after living for five years in the UK. She’s published essays and short stories in various Australian journals and collections, and has had a poem published on one of Canberra’s Action buses. Kathryn began her first novel, Hitch, while studying in the UK, and in 2018 she was awarded the inaugural Penguin Literary Prize for the manuscript.

Doors open at 6pm. Presentation to commence at 6.30pm.
