She was recently voted one of Australia's Favourite 15 Novelists, and has been called 'one of the finest writers of this generation'. She is also an accredited master storyteller with the Australian Guild of Storytellers, and has told stories to both children and adults all over the world. Her latest book is Beauty in Thorns, a novel based on the lives of the women of the Pre-Raphaelite circle.
Kate will speak about her research and writing about neglected women in history, followed by a conversation with author Kelly Gardiner on the joys and challenges of writing historical fictions.
A free event for readers and writers and all lovers of story.
