Frankston City Libraries to host acclaimed Bruny author

Thursday 23 April 2020

In a world where a right-wing US president has withdrawn America from the Middle East and the UN, and Daesh has a thoroughfare to the sea, even the most far-flung corners of the earth can’t escape global change.

When the bomb goes off in remote Tasmania, Astrid Coleman returns home to help her brother prepare for the upcoming election. What she doesn’t expect is the true extent of the conspiracy theories that have engulfed her community, amidst the conflict of her brother and sister – who are on the opposite sides of politics.

Part political thriller, part love story, this genre-bending and prescient novel considers how far a government might go to achieve its aim. It is a searing, subversive story of family, love, loyalty and the new world order.

Frankston City Libraries presents this FREE online FrankTALK with Heather Rose about Bruny and her extensive stable of novels, including winner of the 2017 Stella Prize, The Museum of Modern Love via Zoom.

Frankston City Council Mayor, Sandra Mayer, said the online video conference platform was a terrific way to connect with great Australian authors and the community from the comfort of your own home.

“I’ve heard great things about Bruny and now, thanks to Frankston City Libraries, our community has the opportunity to get insights into the story and writing process from author Heather Rose – how exciting!”
