THE BIG BOOK CLUB EVENT
Who doesn’t like meeting an author to talk about their book? Who wouldn’t like to meet two authors at the one time to talk with them about their book, how they got it published, what it’s like to meet with people who have read their book…and many other questions I’m sure you can think up for yourself. We have two authors for you to meet at The Big Book Club event during the Prom Coast Festival next March.
John Tesarsch is the author of the acclaimed novels The Philanthropist and The Last Will and Testament of Henry Hoffman. He has degrees in music and law, and pursued a career as a cellist in Vienna before he turned to writing. After travelling widely John returned to Australia, where he lives with his wife and two children. He is also a barrister, and he lectures in law at the University of Melbourne. Dinner with the Dissidents is his third novel.
Christian White is a debut author who won the 2017 Wheeler Centre Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Best Unpublished Manuscript. Born and raised on the Mornington Peninsula, Christian had an eclectic range of ‘day jobs’ before he was able to write fulltime. He now spends his days writing from home in Melbourne, where he lives with his wife, filmmaker Summer DeRoche, and their adopted greyhound, Issy. He has a passion for true crime podcasts, Stephen King and anything to do with Bigfoot.
If you’d like top spend a couple of hours with a cuppa in one hand and a sweet eat of some kind in the other, listening to people who love books, then this event is designed just for you.
You will have the pleasure of meeting John and Christian at a panel session ably supervised by ex bookshop owner Jan Bull. You may want to read the work of these two authors before the event, on the day Christian White will talk about The Nowhere Child and John Tesarsch will discuss Dinner with the Dissidents.
The event will be held at The Court House, Station Road, Foster. The date and times are Saturday, March 16th, 2019 at 3.00pm and the session will run through to 4.30pm. You can book at trybooking.com from the Prom Coast Festival website www.promcoastfestival.org. Tickets are $15 per head.
