Trades Hall, Fringe Common Rooms
Catch authors Gabriel Bergmoser and Sophie Gonzales as they share stories of teenagers whose secret identities come completely unstuck. Bergmoser’s novel The True Colour of a Little White Lie centres on a geeky teen who reinvents himself on a family ski trip, with chaotic consequences. Gonzales’ Perfect on Paper is about a queer high schooler who gives anonymous love advice for a fee, but is blackmailed in exchange for keeping her identity a secret.
Gabriel Bergmoser is a Melbourne-based author. His first adult novel, The Hunted (HarperCollins, 2020), is a bestseller and a film adaptation is in development. He’s also the author of the YA novels The True Colour of a Little White Lie (HarperCollins, 2021) and Boone Shepard (Bell Frog Books, 2016).
Sophie Gonzales is the author of The Law of Inertia, Only Mostly Devastated and Perfect on Paper. Her next book, If This Gets Out (co-written with Cale Dietrich), is forthcoming in January 2022 with Hachette.
