Holly Throsby in conversation with Bernard Zuel

The Royal Oak

Monday 31 October from 7pm to 8:30pm


General : $12.64

There's more than one mystery in this town…

An five-time ARIA nominated musician, Holly Throsby makes music and magic on the page in her writing too. Her two previous bestselling novels were beloved of critics and readers alike, and shortlisted for multiple awards.

‘By the end of the beautiful and humble Cedar Valley, you may yearn for another dot on the map of Throsby's imagination,’ wrote the Sydney Morning Herald, and fortunately for us, we have one in her new novel, Clarke.

With a warm, courageous and vital woman at is centre (and another dead woman at its dark heart), Clarke is a story about family and violence, of identity and longing, of unlikely connections and the comedy of everyday life.

On Monday 31 October, join Throsby in conversation on this much-anticipated new book with arts writer and critic, Bernard Zuel.

Attendees are asked to arrive at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Seating is unallocated – another reason to arrive early to secure an optimal spot. Why not make a full evening of it, too, by booking a meal at the Royal Oak before or after the event? One of Balmain's oldest and best-known pubs, it serves a delicious range of food and beverages.

_Clarke _will be available for purchase at the venue through Roaring Stories, with book signings from Throsby following the discussion.

If you miss out on a ticket, you can still watch the event as it is livestreamed from the Roaring Stories Facebook page (accessible on the Home page and from the Live tab). A recording will also be available to view later as an upload on the Roaring Stories YouTube channel.
