Talks & ideas

Described as a “breathless page turner” by The New York Times, and one of the most stunning debuts he’s ever read by David Baldacci, the CWA Gold Dagger Award-winning The Dry catapulted Australian journalist Jane Harper into stardom, and attracted the attention of actor Reese Witherspoon, who has now snaffled the film rights. Harper’s cracking follow-up Force of Nature – the tale of a missing hiker set in Victoria’s rugged Giralang ranges – has already sold to over 30 territories and made it on to numerous best-thriller lists. Join Harper in conversation with Kathy Hunter for some killer talk. 

Supported by Platinum Patrons Carol & Gerard Curry.
