Sensational debut Australian author, Holly Ringland visits the library

Primary tabs

Thursday, 5 April 2018 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

Debut Australian author Holly Ringland talks about her first novel, The lost flowers of Alice Hart, published 19 March 2018.

Holly Ringland grew up wild and barefoot in her mother's tropical garden. When she was nine years old, her family lived in a camper van for two years, travelling across the national parks in North America, an experience that sparked Holly's lifelong interest in cultures and stories.

Set between the sugar cane fields of northern Queensland, a native Australian wildflower farm and a celestial crater in the central Australian desert, Ringland's novel is a love letter to the Australian landscape and reminds us of the innate connection between self-identity and home.

Holly has become an international publishing sensation with the rights her novel already sold in 17 territories including the UK, Canada, Germany & France. In 2015, the first chapter of The lost flowers of Alice Hart won Griffith Review's annual writer award.

Thanks to The Book Warehouse, guests will be able to purchase the book on the night and have it signed by the author.
