Event Description

Full Description:
The UQ Library invites you to attend the annual Fryer Lecture in Australian Literature on the 4 November. Dr Karen Lamb will be discussing her latest book Thea Astley: Inventing Her Own Weather which is a biography of esteemed Australian author Thea Astley (1925-2004). With a writing career that spanned over 50 years, Thea Astley was a dry-witted and eccentric trailblazer for women writers. Astley's Biographer Dr Lamb shares the writer's private world and explores how it shaped her distinctive body of work. A conversation between Dr Lamb and Dr Gillian Whitlock will follow the lecture.
