Join literary icon Kate Morton for a captivating evening of conversation at Museum of Brisbane
If you’ve ever browsed the fiction section of your local bookstore, you’ve most likely set your eyes on a copy (and probably taken home) of one of Kate Morton’s novels. Avid readers are well acquainted with Kate’s literary prowess, with her critically acclaimed titles The Lake House, The Distant Hours and The Clockmaker’s Daughter filling a spot on many book shelves around the world. Now, one of Australia’s biggest literary exports is back in our river city for a very special conversation at Museum of Brisbane on Friday April 30, and you could say we’re more than just a little bit excited.
With a staggering 11 million books sold worldwide, Kate Morton is regarded as one of Australia’s most successful literary talents. Spending her childhood in Queensland (she grew up in Mount Tamborine), Kate now lives and works predominantly in the UK. As the author of six novels – all of which have been New York Times bestsellers, Sunday Times bestsellers, and #1 bestsellers around the world – she is a powerhouse, to say the least. In a win for local literary lovers, the Queensland expat is back in Brisbane to chat with columnist Frances Whiting for the premiere of Museum of Brisbane’s Storytellers In Conversation series.
Kate and Frances will chat all things books, as well as the power of home and history and how they have inspired Kate’s storied career. Event-goers can also bring along their favourite Kate Morton novel, as the event will be followed by a brief book signing by the author. Don’t miss out on this 90-minute in-conversation event with one of Australia’s most beloved wordsmiths – who also happens to be a featured author for Museum of Brisbane’s The Storytellers exhibition. To snag a ticket, we suggest making haste to Museum of Brisbane’s website.
