Maryrose Cuskelly talks about her book, Wedderburn: A True Tale of Blood and Dust

March 23, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Maryrose Cuskelly will be talking about her book, Wedderburn: A True Tale of Blood and Dust.

True crime at its very best. A savage triple homicide shook up the small town of Wedderburn, but like the suspenseful podcast S-Town, things aren’t always as they seem.

In this compelling book, Maryrose Cuskelly gets to the core of Wedderburn and the people within it. The author gets to know the resident nudist farmer, the gruff ex-bikie and his hippie wife as well as the many grieving family and friends from both sides of the court room.
