RSWWF Presents Women Writers@Work: Andrea Goldsmith
Writers at Work
Andrea Goldsmith in conversation with Drusilla Modjeska
The Rose Scott Women Writers Festival is delighted to present the first of an occasional series of intimate events where writers discuss their craft and explore the ideas and influences for their recent work and works in progress.
Andrea Goldsmith’s new novel Invented Lives moves from Soviet Russia to 1980s Melbourne, telling a powerful story of exile and longing, fractured lives and new beginnings, unforgivable acts and enduring love. Andrea’s novels include The Prosperous Thief (short-listed for the 2003 Miles Franklin Award), Reunion (2009) and The Memory Trap (2015 Melbourne Prize). Her literary essays have appeared in Meanjin, Australian Book Review, Best Australian Essays, and numerous anthologies.
Drusilla Modjeska’s books include Exiles at Home, Poppy (NSW Premier's Award), The Orchard (Kibble, NSW Premier's and Australian Bookseller's Book of the Year Awards), Sisters (co-edited), and the bestselling Stravinsky's Lunch. Her first novel The Mountain was shortlisted for the 2013 Miles Franklin Award, the Western Australia Premier's Award and the Barbara Jefferis Award.
