What happens when a writer leaves their homeland for another? Four authors who have hung their hats in fresh fields come together to discuss the effect of their backgrounds and nomadic lives on their work. Join author and foreign correspondent Caroline Brothers (The Memory Stones), Chinese-Australian performer and writer Jenevieve Chang (The Good Girl of Chinatown), English-born author Sara Foster (The Hidden Hours) who now lives in Perth, and Australian author David Francis (Wedding Bush Road), who calls Los Angeles home.
SUSPENSE: SETTING AND MOOD (Free Event)

The Festival’s most exciting suspense writers bring along their latest novels and discuss their art. Sara Foster’s The Hidden Hours is a timeless thriller with a modern twist, set between London and the Australian outback. David Francis’s Wedding Bush Road uses Australia’s outback to explore memory and loss, while Sarah Schmidt’s See What I Have Done is a true story of an 1892 axe murder in Massachusetts. Sara, David and Sarah discuss mood, setting and the art of suspense. With John M. Green.
