The Wheeler Centre, Performance Space
A two-time Sydney Morning Herald Young Novelist of the Year, Jennifer Down provides an early look at her forthcoming novel Bodies of Light. Sublimely wrought in devastating detail, the story unfolds when a viral photo and unexpected Facebook message jolt its protagonist back to a traumatic past she’s reluctant to revisit. Hear from Down as she speaks with Carrie Tiffany about her much-anticipated masterwork of tragedy and heartbreak that examines what happens when buried stories are dragged into the light.
