Big Bluemoose Book Club
Spend an evening in the company of two fantastic authors from quirky indie label Bluemoose Books.
Devika Ponnambalam’s debut I Am Not Your Eve tells the story of Teha’amana, the 13-year-old girl who was sold to artist Paul Gauguin during his first stay on Tahiti in 1891, and incorporates pre-colonial Tahitian origin myths.
Ronan Hession’s delightfully wholesome first novel Leonard & Hungry Paul won our World Cup of Book Club Books, so we can’t wait to hear him read from that and his latest book Panenka, a tale of rebuilding relationships after the disatrous mistakes of the past, learning new ways to let love into broken lives.
Stick around for an informal book club Q&A with the authors.
Ticket includes refreshments.
Copies of Leonard and Hungry Paul and I Am Not Your Eve can be purchased from our official festival bookseller DRAKE the Bookshop.
