Readings St Kilda — 112 Acland St, St Kilda, Victoria, 3182
We are thrilled to celebrate the new edition of one of the world’s oldest novels - Apuleius’ The Golden Ass, now edited by renowned Australian philosopher Peter Singer. Peter will be joined in conversation by much loved author and journalist Ramona Koval, whose latest book is A Letter to Layla: Travels to our deep past and near future.
The Golden Ass is a rollicking, erotic adventure story about a young man who is transformed into a donkey. Singer presents this novel as not just an entertaining story, but also an insightful example of ancient empathy for animals and their suffering.
