Friday 9 August 6pm - 7pm La Trobe Art Institute


Penelope Curtin, Tishani Doshi, Karen Viggers

In the lush wilderness of Paramankeni, Grace learns about a family that will test her very being. In remote Tasmania, Mikaela’s family has shattered, leaving just her and a secretive brother to make a life. Two novels about courage and freedom, set in two very different cultures and landscapes. Tishani Doshi and Karen Viggers talk to Penelope Curtin about finding stories in extraordinary landscapes. How much are Grace and Mikaela of their place, how much young women of the world?
