8:00pm Keynote Address: Mothers and Sons by Elizabeth Hay
It all starts simply enough when a boy wants a dog.
Elizabeth Hay will take us behind the scenes of her most recent novel. She will talk about how she came to write His Whole Life, in which the bond between a mother and son deepens even as the family comes apart – where everything that matters is at risk: family, nature, country, home.
