Geraldine Brooks is one of Australia’s greatest literary exports. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, her bestselling books include Year of Wonders, People of the Book, and The Secret Chord.

Her latest, Horse, is a vivid and unique novel for lovers of sweeping historical fiction. From three strands of fact — a discarded painting in a roadside clean-up; forgotten bones in a research archive; and Lexington, the greatest racehorse in US history — she weaves a sweeping story of spirit, obsession and injustice.

Morally complex, and with 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.

Join Geraldine Brooks, in conversation with Heather Rose, winner of the Stella Prize and author of Bruny, for a lively evening of literary discussion between two acclaimed authors.

Tickets are available through the Theatre Royal.
