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 Kim as she presents her book and details how her mood disorder stripped her bare and how she kept herself going.
“Anyone reading this book will be struck by Kim’s raw honesty and authenticity,” said Catherine Turner, Library Operations and Programs Coordinator.
“The memoir describes how the disorder totally takes over her life and affects Kim’s feelings, moods and thoughts – even the way she views the 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.
