Small Town Stories - The Unexpected Education of Emily Dean
Rural Australia – indeed, rural anywhere – is a storytelling fixture. But in many ways, it’s specifically small towns that make a perfect setting for fiction, and a potent backdrop to coming of age.
In this edition of The Next Big Thing, we’ll hear from the authors of three new novels that take place beyond the big smoke. Slink down to The Moat to discover fresh writing from Mira Robertson (The Unexpected Education of Emily Dean) Jay Carmichael (Ironbark) and Kate O’Donnell (Untidy Towns).
Date: Monday 16 April
Venue: The Moat (Wheeler Centre), 176 Little Lonsdale Street, Melbourne CBD
Price: This is a free event
