Irma Gold in conversation

Readings Hawthorn — 701 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn, Victoria, 3122

Join us in our Hawthorn shop to hear award-winning author Irma Gold chat about her debut novel.

Set in Thailand, The Breaking is a sharply observed and richly vivid story about the intense bond between two young women, and the enduring cost of animal exploitation. Gold – who has worked on projects with elephants rescued from the tourism and logging industries in Chiang Mai, Surin and Kanchanaburi – has drawn from these experiences in writing her novel. It is at once devastating and exhilarating, and ultimately transformative.

This event is free to attend but bookings are essential as places are strictly limited.
