Author Talk: Bernadette Brennan hosting panel at the Newcastle Writers Festival (NSW)

Finding it in the Family

When stories are passed through generations, how does that shape the ones we tell ourselves? These novels use memory and lore to blend the real with the imagined. Tony Birch, Andre Dao and Laura Elizabeth Woollett share how family history helped inform their fiction. Hosted by Bernadette Brennan.
