In Conversation: Drusilla Modjeska and Beth Yahp
Thu. 12 November 2015, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm AEDT
You're invited to hear Drusilla Modjeska and Beth Yahp in conversation about their new memoirs.
Beginning with the disastrous events of the night before her fortieth birthday, in Second Half First Drusilla Modjeska looks back on the experiences of the past thirty years that have shaped her writing, her reading and the way she has lived.
In Eat First, Talk Later Beth Yahp persuades her ageing parents on a road trip around their former home, Malaysia. Only the family mantra, ‘Eat first, talk later' keeps them (and perhaps the country) from falling apart. Around them, corruption, censorship of the media, detentions without trial and deaths in custody continue.
Join both authors as they converse and explore these two beautifully written, absorbing and deeply honest memoirs.
