Local author set to take us on an emotional journey

LOCAL author Kim Hodges returns to the Harry Bailey Memorial Library at 6pm on October 18 with 'Girl over the Edge', the sequel to her highly successful, no-holds-barred 2016 memoir 'Girl on the Edge'.

'Girl over the Edge' continues her story with a powerful and stirring insight into what it's like to live - and succeed - with a mental illness.

The book centres on Kim's battles to understand, and her work to overcome, bipolar disorder.

Join us for an emotional journey with Kim as she presents her book and details how her mood disorder stripped her bare and articulates what has kept her going. The reader will be struck by her honesty and authenticity.

The memoir highlights how the disorder totally takes over her life through the way it affects Kim's feelings, moods, thoughts and the way she views her world at the times she is most vulnerable.

Entry is free, but to secure your place please go to Kim Hodges Eventbrite Refreshments and finger food will be served and Kim will be available to sign copies of 'Girl over the Edge' after her talk. For more information on Kim Hodges, visit her website kimhodges.id.au.
