Better Read Than Dead – Saturday, July 7
3pm – 4.30pm
What if the thing in your past is so big that to avoid talking about it you’d have to move far away, but you loved your home so much you couldn’t leave?
Staying is a searing memoir by acclaimed novelist Jessie Cole, about surviving personal tragedy and finding a place to heal. Her highly praised novels, Darkness on the Edge of Town and Deeper Water, explore similar themes, but it is this, her own powerful story filled with profound wisdom and redemptive beauty, that she has been longing to write.
Join Jessie Cole for a conversation about Staying, over a high tea of sweets, scones, sandwiches and champagne.
Better Read Than Dead – 265 King Street, Newtown, NSW.
