Book Talk – Lauren Chater

Thu November 12 at 6:30 pm

Two amazing historical fiction authors, one evening of fascinating conversation.

A very special event with Gulliver’s Wife author Lauren Chater in conversation with Meg Keneally, author of The Wreck.

Chater’s works are known for their atmospheric and richly detailed storytelling. Gulliver’s Wife is the tale of Mary Burton Gulliver, who must set out on a journey to discover the truth of her husband’s travels, and the landscape of her own heart.

Meg Keneally is the author of The Wreck and Fled, and co-author of the historical crime Monsarrat series, which she writes with her father Tom Keneally.

This author talk is a NSW Public Libraries collaboration. Presented with the support of Simon & Schuster and NSW Public Library Association.

Numbers are limited for this free virtual event and bookings are essential.

This presentation will be broadcast online using Zoom. Book your place and we’ll send you a Zoom link to join the meeting (download and install from zoom.us if you haven’t already).
