Join us for a Friends Member exclusive book club, where the book choice is eclectic, the guests are captivating and the company is Friendly.

For the Friends online Book Club, join special guest author, Kate Grenville, for a companionable conversation about her latest book A Room Made of Leaves, published by Text Publishing. 

From the book description:
'What if Elizabeth Macarthur—wife of the notorious John Macarthur, wool baron in the earliest days of Sydney—had written a shockingly frank secret memoir? And what if novelist Kate Grenville had miraculously found and published it? That’s the starting point for A Room Made of Leaves, a playful dance of possibilities between the real and the invented.'

You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions before and during the session in a friendly and informal online setting. Settle in for a Friends-only chat, to learn and converse in the comfort of home with a good group of Friends.

Join this session via Zoom and learn how digitisation defeats isolation and opens up access in a pandemic, or any time.
