Events In-conversation with Geraldine Brooks on 'Horse'

Boffins Books and the State Library of Western Australia are delighted to host Geraldine Brooks for an in-conversation event on 'Horse'.

Geraldine will be in-conversation with radio presenter Gillian O'Shaughnessy. 

About ‘Horse

A discarded painting in a roadside clean-up, forgotten bones in a research archive, and Lexington, the greatest racehorse in US history. From these strands of fact, Geraldine Brooks weaves a sweeping story of spirit, obsession, and injustice across American history.

With the moral complexity of March and a multi-stranded narrative reminiscent of People of the Book, this enthralling novel is a gripping reckoning with the legacy of enslavement and racism in America. Horse is the latest masterpiece from a writer with a prodigious talent for bringing the past to life.

Can't make it?  We'll happily have a copy of Geraldine Brooks’ ‘Horse’ signed for you.  Simply contact us via phone, email, online or visit us in-store and we'll take care of the rest.
