Geraldine Brooks and Miles Allinson

Thursday, 15 September 2022 - 11:30am to 11:59am

Geraldine Brooks provides a sweeping account of America’s past by following the horse, Lexington, in a book simply titled, ‘Horse’. What is revealed are links to slavery, the art world and how history is preserved today but there are also echoes of the past in the current day attitudes of its citizens.

Three generations are looking for inspiration and guidance to find out how to love and live. From the Indian ashram in the 70’s to closed societies of the future, the outcomes for these three generations, lead to very different consequences. Miles Allinson looks into the past and future in his novel ‘In Moonland’.

Thursday 11:30am to 11:59am
