We are now transitioning to our new home at Bentleigh Library and Youth Hub, opening on Wednesday 26 October with our family-friendly Open Day. Services will still be available at Caulfield, Elsternwick and Carnegie libraries - as well as online. You can also return your books to any of these branches while we are moving. Check out our full FAQ for more information and follow us on social media for updates.


Vikki Petraitis: The Unbelieved

Vikki Petraitis in conversation with Claire Halliday,

Vikki's successful career as a true crime writer spans more than 25 years.

In that time, she has published 18 non-fiction books that highlight her passion for justice and supporting victims of crime, including bestselling books The Frankston Murders (about serial killer Paul Denyer), and The Phillip Island Murder, which has been featured in several TV shows and podcasts.

Turning her hand to crime fiction, Vikki was recently announced as the inaugural winner of the Allen & Unwin crime fiction prize for The Unbelieved.

Chilling, timely and gripping, Vikki’s fictional debut takes us behind the headlines to a small-town world that is all too real - and introduces us to a brilliant new voice in crime fiction.

This event includes audience Q&A and book signings. Suitable for adults.  

Free event and bookings essential.
