‘Diane Armstrong’s book is a source of delight to the reader. Written with fervour and talent, it will capture your attention and retain it to the last page.’ – Nobel Prizewinner Elie Wiesel on Mosaic

‘Just as AB Facey’s A Fortunate Life and Sally Morgan’s My Place have become part of the national literary heritage, so too has Mosaic earned its place in our social dialogue as part of our cultural tapestry.’ – Daily Telegraph on Mosaic

Nocturne is one of those novels that will leave you reading into the night and will stay with you, like the notes of an unforgettable melody, long after you’ve read the last line.’ – Australian Jewish News on Nocturne

There will be a morning tea provided. This event is in celebration with Library Lover’s Week.
