Meet the Author: Kate Grenville

We are very, very excited to invite you to join us for our next Virtual Meet the Author session with one of Australia's best-loved novelists, Kate Grenville, as she launches her first novel in nearly a decade, A Room Made of Leaves. We will be bringing Kate, who will be in-conversation with Matilda Bookshop's Molly Murn, to you via Zoom on Wednesday August 12 at 7pm.

A Room Made of Leaves, turns historical fiction inside out. It is a stunning sleight of hand that gives the past the piercing immediacy of the present and reveals its urgent implications for our future. What if Elizabeth Macarthur—wife of the notorious John Macarthur, wool baron in early Sydney—had written a shockingly frank secret memoir? 

Kate Grenville’s international bestseller The Secret River has won local and overseas prizes, been adapted for the stage and screen, and is now a much-loved classic. Her other novels include Sarah Thornhill, The Lieutenant, Dark Places and The Idea of Perfection. Her most recent books are non-fiction: One Life: My Mother’s Story and The Case Against Fragrance.

All that you will need to join this Meet the Author event is an internet connection and a device (computer, phone, tablet) with audio. The Zoom application will download automatically when you are invited to the event, or you can download Zoom to your device ahead of time. 

You will be sent a link to Meet the Author: Kate Grenville the day before the event.

Tickets are $5 or you can purchase Ticket + Book option for just $39.99 (A Room Made of Leaves RRP $39.99) which includes free postage or Adelaide Hills Delivery of Kate's book to South Australian addresses, when it is published July 2nd (we also post to interstate addresses for $8). To receive your copy of Kate's book upon release and well ahead of the event, choose Ticket + Book option.
