Talking Writing Events

Talking Writing: Brooke Davis – 25 September

Our Talking Writing event for September features bestselling debut author Brooke Davis and some of the team from Hachette, the publishers of her heart-warming novel. Lost & Found is a ‘highly entertaining road trip and much, much more’ (The West Australian), ‘heartbreaking and funny and brilliant’ (Herald Sun), and ‘a lovely, whimsical story’ (Good Reading).

After seven-year old Millie Bird realises that all creatures are mortal, she begins to put together her own ‘Book of Dead Things’. After the death of her father, she meets two lost souls called Agatha and Carl. They start to break the rules to discover what living is all about.

Brooke Davis’ first novel has sparked a huge amount of buzz in Australia and overseas. Join us for a discussion between Brooke, her publisher Vanessa Radnidge, and Alice Wood of Hachette’s marketing team on the themes of her novel and the making of a bestseller. Hosted by NSW Writers’ Centre board chair Linda Funnell.

This event is free for members of the NSW Writers’ Centre. RSVP to Tickets for non-members are $10 and can be purchased here.
