Family history

This event is part of the library's new and emerging authors series.

This stunning debut novel is set in Melbourne in the 1930s and follows Lily as she is taken in by a bohemian and charismatic family of artists.

It is a beautiful, literary novel about friendship, betrayal and the desire to be extraordinary.

In this session, Emily will read an excerpt from her novel and talk with the audience about her writing experience and how she creates a sense of place in her work.
