Double Booked Club: Anna Krien and Favel Parrett

Friday 18 October 2019, 12.30pm-1.30pm at The Wheeler Centre

For October’s Double Booked Club, we’ll hear from two acclaimed Australian authors, whose new works of fiction take readers to distant corners of the globe … and back again.

Act of Grace is the first novel from celebrated journalist Anna Krien. It’s a series of interconnected narratives, featuring an Australian soldier returned from Baghdad and a young musician fleeing Saddam Hussein. It’s a highly anticipated and original book, about inheritance and trauma.

There Was Still Love is the thrilling new novel from Favel Parrett; one that also arrives with a high degree of anticipation. Favel is the Miles Franklin-shortlisted author of Past the Shallows and When the Night Comes. Her new book traverses Prague and Melbourne during the tumultuous 20th Century. It’s a profound and moving story about family and loyalty.

Meet two brilliant Australian writers for a fascinating lunchtime conversation.
