I'm very excited to be part of this panel at Melbourne's Wheeler Centre. The Next Big Thing is a series that "showcases the best in fresh Australian writing – with a focus on a different genre each month. You’ll hear from future favourites, and discover new darlings while you enjoy a drink and a bite in the intimate surrounds of The Moat.
"Why wait for everyone else to catch up? Find tomorrow’s literary stars today."
The subject for this panel is "Dangerous Minds".
From the Wheeler Centre website: "Angela Meyer’s haunting debut, A Superior Spectre, follows the treacherous experiments and desires of a dying man as he becomes entangled in a surreal plot that melds historical and speculative fiction. In the post-megastorm world of Vincent Silk’s first novel, Sisters of No Mercy, a group of rebels upset the establishment in their quest for survival. And in Margaret Morgan’s The Second Cure, an inexplicable outbreak bends society in bizarre ways – revealing dilemmas at the core of what makes us who we are, and how we make sense of our predicaments.
"These three new Australian novels each chart a rupture – personal, political, psychical – and an unexpected encounter with danger. Join their three authors, plus a Voiceworks writer to be announced, for readings that plumb the unease of our era."
