When memoirist Patti Miller fulfilled a lifelong dream of spending a year writing in Paris, she turned to French writers including Montaigne, de Beauvoir and Rousseau for guidance.  These authors' intent on knowing the self through gazing into the "looking glass" of the world inspired her musings on love, identity, culture, suffering, desire, motherhood, truth-telling, memory and ultimately the writing journey.

Join us when she shares her story about going from her heartland of the Wiradjuri land in country Australia to her year spent reading, writing and searching in Paris.

Join us for a very special evening with one of Australia's most awarded and celebrated authors, Kate Grenville.

Kate will be talking about her new book One Life: My Mother's Story which is a memoir about her mother Nance - a woman whose life spanned a centuryof tumult and change in Australia.  In many ways Nance's story echoes that of many Australian mothers and grandmothers, for whom the spectacular shifts of the 20th century offered a path of new freedoms and choices.  The book was drawn from fragments of a memoir discovered after Nance's death and this event promises to be a very personal and intimate exchange.
