The Festival runs over the weekend of May 30/31st 2015 with an amazing collection of authors and illustrators from ‘down under’.
As publishers and booksellers, with strong project links to Australia, the range, diversity and quality of the Festival programme makes the event hugely attractive.
The Secret River is a favourite book, as it paints such an amazing picture of life in Australia in early1800’s.
Kate Grenville is in discussion about her new memoir One Life: My Mother’s Story. The book pays tribute to a woman whose life spanned a century of tumult and change; for whom the spectacular shifts of the 20th century offered new freedoms and choices in an era when women had been expected to have no ambitions beyond the domestic. It is a deeply moving homage by one of Australia’s finest writers.
With the publication of nine novels, a collection of short stories and four books about the writing process, Kate Grenville is one of Australia’s best-known contemporary authors. Her work includes Lilian’s Story (1985), Dreamhouse (1986), Dark Places (1994) and The Secret River (2005).
