Canberra Times ANU Literary Event Meet the Author Series 2012

Former presenter of ABC’s Radio National The Book Show, Ramona Koval, will speak about By the Book, a memoir about reading and living, and of the authors that have written themselves into her life: from Oliver Sacks to Oscar Wilde, Christina Stead to Grace Paley.

Koval discusses her childhood and provides insights into her extraordinary mother and tragic family history. It is a journey through Koval’s diverse reading habits—from politics to science, feminism, travel, polar explorers, anthropology, classics, and even the Kama Sutra—interspersed with citations and a few personal anecdotes about the authors she has befriended along the way.

Koval’s enthusiasm for reading bubbles from every page as she joins with us in a “magnificent party of the mind”.

Book sales and signings will follow the lecture.
