Join acclaimed, bestselling novelist and essayist Fiona Kelly McGregor in discussion about her new title Iris, an exploration into the underbelly of 1930s sly-grog Sydney, and the life of petty criminal and gunslinger Iris Webber.

Meticulously researched and for lovers of literary and crime fiction alike, Iris, is a striking and vibrantly told story about a woman who couldn’t be held back, set in a time of cataclysmic change.

Fiona Kelly McGregor has published eight books, most recently the photoessay A Novel Idea, and essay collection Buried Not Dead, which was shortlisted for the Victorian Premiers Literary Awards. Other books include short story collection Suck My Toes/Dirt which won the Steele Rudd Award, and the underground classic chemical palace. Her novel Indelible Ink won Age Book of the Year and was published in French translation by Actes-Sud. McGregor is also known for a substantial repertoire of performance art, which has been seen internationally. She has held residencies at Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, Carriageworks, Sydney, and the BR Whiting Studio, Rome. When in Sydney, McGregor lives and works on Gadigal land.
