In Conversation: Holden Sheppard and ‘The Brink’

27 September @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Join the City of South Perth Libraries to celebrate the release of Holden’s new book The Brink.

Holden and Natalya will be discussing The Brink, the writing process and all the jagged edges in between.

Recommended for adults and older teens.

About the Author: Holden, an advocate for literature and young writers, is a fabulous Literature Champion for the City of South Perth. A self-professed bogan, gym junkie and down to earth country kid, Holden uses his works to explore masculinity, expressing oneself and identity.

Holden Sheppard won the Hungerford Award in 2018 for his breakout novel ‘Invisible Boys’ which went onto win additional awards and critical acclaim. An incredible young adult novel which depicts the complexities and trauma of rural gay identity with painful honesty, devastating consequence and, ultimately, hope. Invisible Boys was such as success, that it is now being adapted into a ten-episode TV series to be released on Stan.

Holden’s second novel The Brink was released in August 2022 and has been well received as Holden has toured around Australia.
