Hobart, Fullers Bookshop, 6pm Thurs 26 October with Linda Cockburn

September 30, 2010

L.A. Larkin, environmental thriller author, will be in conversation with Linda Cockburn, sustainability proponent and acclaimed author of Living the Good Life, on Thurs 26 October.

We will be discussing the depiction of environmental themes by fiction authors over the last 20 years, moving through John Grisham’s The Pelican Brief and Michael Crichton’s State of Fear, through to more recent novels such as Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake / Year of The Flood and Ian McEwan’s Solar. They will ask if the rise of the environmental thriller marks a change in focus in the general population. A timely debate, considering how successful the Greens have been in the recent Federal Election.

Free event. Please join us 6:00pm at Fullers bookshop, Hobart.
