If you’re in Melbourne, perhaps you’d like to spend an Evening with Award Winning UK Crime Writer, Kate Atkinson

8.30pm, Friday 24th May.

The Wheeler Centre, in association with Sisters in Crime, is presenting Kate Atkinson for an evening of conversation with Sisters in Crime co-convenor, Professor Sue Turnbull.

BehindTheScenesAtTheMuseumKate Atkinson’s first book, Behind the Scenes of the Museum, beat Salman Rushdie to win the Whitbread Book of the Year. Since then, she’s captured readers’ hearts with her tough-but-empathetic Yorkshire PI, Jackson Brodie.

Her latest book, the wildly inventive (non-crime book) Life After Life, is shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction – and hotly tipped for this year’s Booker. What if you had the chance to live your life again and again, until you got it right? The characters in this genre-bending book get just that.

Kate Atkinson appears as part of a double-bill with Sylvia Nasar. Book your discounted tickets to both sessions via the Wheeler Centre

Sue Turnbull is Professor of Communication and Media Studies at the University of Wollongong. Her research interests include media education, media audiences and television studies.

Tickets & Bookings: $20 and $12 concession. http://wheelercentre.com/events/event/kate-atkinson/
