Event description

Description

Award-winning author Tom Keneally comes to North Lakes Library in April.

Well-known for his novels - including The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith, Schindler's List and The People's Train - he is now also the subject of a 55 cent Australian stamp!

Since publishing his first novel in 1964, Keneally has won the Miles Franklin Award, the Booker Prize, the Los Angeles Times Prize, the Mondello International Prize and has been made a Literary Lion of the New York Public Library, a Fellow of the American Academy, and recipient of the University of California gold medal.

He has held various academic posts in the United States, but lives in Sydney.

Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. The author will sign books after his talk. Buy a book at the event, or bring your own copy along to be signed. Free. Bookings required.

About The Dickens Boy: Writing with verve, compassion and humour, Keneally's novel brings to life the story of Charles Dickens's 10th child, Edward Bulwar Lytton Dickens, known as Plorn. Dickens sent the then 16-year-old to the colonies to learn to "apply himself". In remote New South Wales, Plorn learns the skills of a stockman against a backdrop of convicts, colonists, cricket, horse racing and bushrangers.
