Event description

Description

Join us in hearing Dr Michelle Johnston, discuss her newly-published novel, Dustfall, set in the town of Wittenoom.

Dustfall is the tale of the crashing consequences of medical error, the suffering caused by asbestos mining and the power of storytelling. It has been described as “haunting and lyrical, humming with compassion and insight”.

Dr Johnston is a consultant Emergency Physician who works at an inner-city hospital. Mostly, her days consist of trauma and mess. She believes there is a beating heart of humanity, art and beauty within the sometimes brutal reality of the Emergency Department. Books are her other oxygen, and writing her sustenance.

Dustfall is published by UWA Publishing.

Light refreshments will be served fifteen minutes before the talk begins at 6pm (a gold coin donation is welcome).

This event is free but bookings are essential. Please remember to cancel your booking if you are unable to attend so that someone else may enjoy the ticket.
