Meet Alli Sinclair - Chermside Library
Queensland, 1994: When location manager Claire Montgomery arrives in rural Queensland to work on a TV mini-series, she’s captivated by the beauty of Starlight Creek and the surrounding sugarcane fields. Working in a male-dominated industry is challenging, but Claire has never let that stop her pursuing her dreams – until now.
Hollywood, 1950: Lena Lee has struggled to find the break that will catapult her into a star with influence. She longs for roles about strong, independent women but with Hollywood engulfed in politics and a censorship battle, Lena’s timing is wrong. Forced to keep her love affair with actor Richard Garity a secret, Lena puts her career on the line to fight for equality for women in an industry ruled by men.
Can two women – decades apart – uncover lies and secrets to live the life they’ve dared to dream?
Join author Alli Sinclair as she shares her heart-stirring novel of loss, love and new hope, The Cinema At Starlight Creek.
Books will be available for purchase on the day, or bring your copy from home for Alli to sign.
Presented as part of the Lord Mayor's Writers in Residence series.
