Hear from fantasy favourite Samantha Shannon, at a live event in Parramatta for ABC RN’s Big Weekend of Books and Sydney Writers’ Festival.

Shannon is a bestselling writer (and BookTok legend) for her dystopian series, The Bone Season, and her sapphic fantasy The Priory of the Orange Tree, along with its prequel, A Day of Fallen Night.

Shannon joins The Book Show’s Claire Nichols in a conversation about fantasy, fandom and female desire.

This session will be broadcast on ABC RN's Big Weekend of Books (15–16 June).

Presented in partnership with Riverside Theatres.
