About this Event

Join us for an evening discussion about the new book All Our Shimmering Skies by Australian author Trent Dalton.

All Our Shimmering Skies is set in Darwin in 1942. As Japanese bombs rain down, motherless Molly Hook, the gravedigger’s daughter, turns to the sky for guidance. She carries a stone heart inside a duffel bag, next to a map that leads to Longcoat Bob, the deep-country sorcerer who put a curse on her family. By her side are the most unlikely travelling companions: Greta, a razor-tongued actress, and Yukio, a fallen Japanese fighter pilot. Beyond the bush lies the treasure. Close behind them trails the dark. And above them, always, are the skies. All Our Shimmering Skies is a story about gifts that fall from the sky, curses we dig from the earth and the secrets we bury inside ourselves.

This book comes two years after the release of his phenomenal bestseller, Boy Swallows Universe – a book which took home a record-breaking five Australian Book Industry Awards and was longlisted for the 2019 Miles Franklin Literary Award.
