Book Launch: Painting the Light

Readings St Kilda — Boonwurrung Country, 112 Acland St, St Kilda, Victoria, 3182

Ned Manning’s latest novel is historical romance, set between 1936-1951. He has been working on bringing Painting the Light to life for nearly a decade, experimenting with different forms before settling on telling this fictionalised version of his parents’ lives, based on research, letters, field trips and good old-fashioned imagination. We are delighted to be launching his ode to love.

Georgina Banks will be doing the launching honours on the night.
