RedWrites Author in Action Fiona McIntosh
Thu. 24 November 2016, 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm AEST
Bookings: 3884 4000
Fiona McIntosh, the chart-topping author of The Perfumer’s Secret, brings us a sensuous novel about family duty, honour and the intoxication of forbidden love; and chocolate.
The Chocolate Tin is a heart wrenching novel from one our most cherished storytellers, taking us from the beautiful historic town of York to the horrifying trenches of the First World War.
Fiona McIntosh enjoyed a long career in the travel industry before becoming an author, and continues to travel the world for inspiration. The Chocolate Tin took her all over Europe to the famous chocolate destinations of Belgium, Bruges, Switzerland and Austria, as well as the battlefields of Northern France. It was when she visited York Chocolate Museum and discovered a chocolate tin from the front line, and learnt of its origin, that her story really took its hold.
This free event is brought to you in partnership with Angus and Robertson Victoria Point.
Books will be available to purchase at the event.
