Join acclaimed Australian authors Jennifer Down and Hannah Kent as they discuss their immersive and lyrical new novels that find beauty and hope amid tragedy. Praised as “mesmerising, brutal and unforgettable” (Sydney Morning Herald), Jennifer’s Bodies of Light traces a woman’s quest to forge a meaningful life after overcoming cycles of abuse and trauma. Hannah’s Devotion is a historical queer love story that journeys from Prussia to the South Australian frontier, exploring love, longing and the pain that arises from division. They appear with Susan Wyndham.
