Best-selling fiction writer Monica McInerney will stop at Murray Bridge to give a talk at the local library as part of her South Australian tour.

The 10-date tour traverses the state in celebration of her new novel The Godmothers, to be released on September 29.

The book follows Eliza Miller and is set in Australia, Scotland, Ireland and England.

"It is a moving and perceptive story about love, lies, hope and sorrow, about the families we are born into and the families we make for ourselves," according to Penguin Books Australia.

Australian-born and Dublin-based, Monica has spent the last 20 years between the two countries, after growing up in the Clare Valley.

She has written multiple best-sellers, including A Taste for It, Upside Down Inside Out, Spin the Bottle, The Alphabet Sisters, Family Baggage, Those Faraday Girls, At Home with the Templetons, Lola's Secret, The House of Memories, and The Trip of a Lifetime, and a short story collection, All Together Now.

In 2008 Those Faraday Girls won General Fiction Book of the Year at the Australian Book Industry Awards.

Monica's talk will be held at the library at 2pm on Friday, October 9.

Places are limited - to book yours, contact the Murray Bridge Library on 8539 1175 or speak to staff.

Those in attendance are asked to adhere to physical distancing at all times while in the Library.
