Word Salad: Big Book Club – Extinctions
November's Big Book Club is reading Josephine Wilson's Extinctions, which won the inaugural Dorothy Hewett Award and the 2017 Miles Franklin Literary Award.
The novel is an exploration of its title in every way as it follows Frederick Lothian, a widow and reluctant retiree, whose inability to handle complex human problems estranges him from his family. When his neighbour Jan lifts him from his mental clutter, Frederick is given a chance to change.
Free to members of the South Coast Writers Centre. $5 for non-members.
This event is part of the SCWC Word Salad Program, featuring a different literary arts night every Wednesday. Like the Word Salad Facebook page to stay updated!
