Library Buzz Week - Alice Nelson author talk

Tuesday, 28 May 2019 | 06:00 PM to 07:30 PM

Alice Nelson

Alice Nelson has been named the Sydney Morning Herald’s Best Young Australian Novelist and won the T.A.G. Hungerford Award for her first novel, The Last Sky.

Alice’s new novel, The Children’s House, refers to the place in an Israeli kibbutz where children live. The idea is that the children belong to the nation, not their parents, and they can only grow into strong Jewish people for Israel if they are raised communally in the Children’s House.

This character driven novel skilfully weaves together stories of displacement, love and the lasting effects of trauma into a beautifully told, hope-filled, outstanding story.

Join Alice for a lively chat with host Emily Paull.

Bookings are essential and can be made online, in person or over the phone.
Light refreshments served from 6pm.
