With a long and illustrious career, multi-award winning author Kate Grenville is one of Australia’s finest writers.

Kate is the author of nine works of fiction and four works of non-fiction, her novels have won many awards both in Australia and the UK, several have been made into major feature films, and all have been translated into European and Asian languages.

Kate’s latest novel Sarah Thornhill, the third in Kate’s “Colonial Trilogy” which began with The Secret River, again addresses the dark legacy of colonialism, especially its impact on Australia’s Aboriginal peoples.

ABC Coast FM and 612 ABC Brisbane broadcaster Richard Fidler will talk to Kate about her life as an acclaimed writer, the creative process and its ups and downs.

The chat will also cover the extensive research she undertook for her most recent works and the issues that emerged from that research. It promises to be a compelling event.
