Inga Simpson in conversation

Online

Please note: This is an online event.

From the Miles Franklin- and Stella Prize-longlisted author, who lived through the Australian fires, Inga Simpson’s The Last Woman in the World looks at how we treat our world and each other - and what it is that might ultimately redeem us.

It’s night, and the walls of Rachel’s home creak as they settle into the cover of darkness. Fear has led her to a reclusive life on the land, her only occasional contact with her sister. A hammering on the door. There stands a mother, Hannah, and her sick baby. They are running for their lives from a mysterious death sweeping the Australian countryside. Now Rachel must face her worst fears: should she take up the fight to help these strangers survive in a society she has rejected for so long?

We are delighted to have Inga in conversation with acclaimed author Kate Mildenhall.
