SWRG: Heat and Light

The Serious Whitefella Reading Group (SWRG) is reading Ellen van Neerven’s book, Heat and Light (St.Lucia: UQP, 2014) for its next meeting.

From Ellen van Neerven’s website:

In this award-winning work of fiction, Ellen van Neerven takes her readers on a journey that is mythical, mystical and still achingly real.

Over three parts, she takes traditional storytelling and gives it a unique, contemporary twist. In ‘Heat’, we meet several generations of the Kresinger family and the legacy left by the mysterious Pearl. In ‘Water’, van Neerven offers a futuristic imagining of a people whose existence is under threat. While in ‘Light’,  familial ties are challenged and characters are caught between a desire for freedom and a sense of belonging.

Heat and Light presents an intriguing collection while heralding the arrival of an exciting new talent in Australian writing.

*We’ll be meeting at Thresherman’s Bakehouse, 221 Faraday St, Carlton, on Monday 5th June at 12:30 and be chit-chatting about it until about 2pm. All welcome. All participate.
