Words at Wagstaffe returns in March

Sarah Barrie will be one of the authors featured on the day

Words at Wagstaffe, a much-loved staple in the Central Coast literary calendar, will return to Wagstaffe Hall on Saturday, March 16.

Held annually in partnership between Words on the Waves Writers Festival and The Bouddi Society, this will be the fourth year the one-day literary event has delighted a full-house crowd.

In 2024, Words at Wagstaffe drifts to the darker side of the tracks for a day of thrills, true crime and mystery with the theme Truly Criminal.

Joining the line-up is Australia’s homegrown king of crime, Michael Robotham, whose latest release is the standalone thriller Lying Beside You.

He will be in conversation with cinema doyenne Margaret Pomeranz.

Dan Box will share the hard-to-believe true story of murder and injustice charted in The Man Who Wasn’t There with fellow investigative journalist, Garry Linnell.

Two Central Coast stars, Sarah Barrie and Anna Downes will take attendees on a thrilling journey through Barrie’s 2023 release Vendetta, as well as its predecessors Unforgiven and Retribution.

Author of bestselling memoir Salvation Creek, Susan Duncan, will chat about her playful small-town page turner Sleepless in Stringybark Bay with Benny Agius.

Bouddi Society President, Peter Park, said the society was delighted to continue the partnership for the fourth year with Words on the Waves Writers Festival.

He commended the consistently impeccable execution of the Words at Wagstaffe program, describing it as a “unique and professionally curated experience for the Bouddi Peninsula community”.

“The 2024 edition with its spotlight on thriller and crime writers will surely be a resounding success, with likely another sold-out event,” he said.

Words on the Waves Festival Director Angela Bennetts said Words at Wagstaffe is always a deeply rewarding experience for the book-loving community of the Central Coast.

“The 2024 program Truly Criminal might be the best yet,” she said.

Words at Wagstaffe: Truly Criminal will be held from 9.45am-4.45pm on Saturday, March 16, at Wagstaffe Hall.
