Event description

Description

Join renowned author Kate Forsyth in a discussion and book signing of her newest novel, Beauty in Thorns. A spellbinding reimagining of the Sleeping Beauty fairytale, Beauty in Thorns is set amongst the passions, scandals and tragedies of the Pre-Raphaelite circle of painters and poets. Told in four extraordinary womens voices– the wives and daughters, mistresses and muses of famous artists, the true dramatic story of love, desire, obsession and heartbreak is bought to life. Beauty in Thorns is for anyone who loved Tracy Chevalier’s Girl With A Pearl Earring or A. S. Byatt’s Possession.

Kate Forsyth wrote her first novel at the age of seven, and has since sold more than a million copies around the world. Her books include Bitter Greens, a retelling of Rapunzel which won the 2015 American Library Association Award for Best Historical Fiction; The Wild Girl, the story of the forbidden romance behind the Grimm Brothers’ famous fairytales, named the Most Memorable Love Story of 2013; and The Beast’s Garden, a re-telling of ‘The Singing, Springing Lark’ set in the underground resistance to Hitler in Nazi Germany. Kate Forsyth has a BA in literature, a MA in creative writing and a doctorate in fairytale studies, and is also an accredited master storyteller with the Australian Guild of Storytellers.
