Art, life, chooks
Meet author Annette Hughes, who in her previous lives has been a bookseller, contemporary art dealer, theatrical film and television agent, small publisher and literary agent.
As a literary agent Annette Hughes lived a life of launch parties dealmaking and endless manuscripts. It was a job that seemed to follow naturally from her work with painters sculptors actors and musicians. But then she gave it all up and headed back to the state of her birth Queensland and a farm in the Noosa hinterland with her partner Geoffrey.
Now her life is digging the vegetable patch watching the seasons tending the chooks and animating a class of disinclined drama students at a local school. Some days she loses her voice. On others she may speak to no one or simply spend an hour or two communing with the cows or watching horrified as Geoffrey fights off pythons in the chook house.
Wednesday 11 Feb 6.30pm
