Event description

Description

We are excited to announce that award winning author, Felicity Castagna will be 'in conversation' with us at Hawkesbury Central Library as part of Sydney Writers' Festival 2018.

Felicity is a winner of the Prime Minister's Literature Award (YA) and the IBBY Honour Book for Australia for her previous novel, The Incredible Here and Now. Her recent novel No More Boats is set during the 2001 Tampa affair, the TV and radio scream out that the country is being flooded and overrun by migrants. Antonio, once a migrant himself, has been forced to retire, his wife has left him for the woman next door, and amid his growing paranoia a ghost commands him to write ‘No More Boats’ in giant letters across his front yard. This is the story of a man and a nation unravelling together.

Felicity's book No More Boats will be available for purchase and signing. We look forward to seeing you there!


Refreshments will be provided at 6pm with the talk commencing at 6.30pm.
