What happens when a writer leaves their homeland for another? Four authors who have hung their hats in fresh fields come together to discuss the effect of their backgrounds and nomadic lives on their work. Join author and foreign correspondent Caroline Brothers (The Memory Stones), Chinese-Australian performer and writer Jenevieve Chang (The Good Girl of Chinatown), English-born author Sara Foster (The Hidden Hours) who now lives in Perth, and Australian author David Francis (Wedding Bush Road), who calls Los Angeles home.
