In conversation with Craig Silvey

Meet the Author is delighted that Craig Silvey is finally able to travel from Western Australia to be in conversation with Sally Pryor on Honeybee, Silvey's third novel, which won the 2020 Dymock's Book of the Year.

Honeybee, from the author of bestselling and class list favourite, Jasper Jones, is a tender, profoundly moving novel, brimming with vivid characters and luminous words.

ALIA CRR (Canberra and Region Retirees) Connect and Chat

For our July ALIA (CRR) Canberra and Region Retirees Connect and Chat we are (tentatively) planning to have our first face-to-face event for 2020. Our thoughts are that we will shorten the meeting, making it a lunch-time event. If between now and then there is a second wave of COVID-19 cases in the ACT we will cancel the face-to-face meeting and move to a virtual meeting.
