The Old Lie: Claire Coleman in Conversation

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

Image: Author Claire Coleman

Claire Coleman will be discussing Indigenous speculative fiction and her books, The Old Lie and Terra Nullius, in conversation with Noongar writer and academic, Cassie Lynch. This will be followed by refreshments and book signing.

Tickets are $5 to cover the cost of the venue and some refreshments afterwards. The entry price is redeemable off the cost of a copy of The Old Lie at the event. There are a small number of complementary tickets available directly from Rabble Books & Games, send us a message if you are in need of one.

About the author: Claire G. Coleman is a writer from Western Australia. She identifies with the South Coast Noongar people. Her family are associated with the area around Ravensthorpe and Hopetoun. Claire grew up in a Forestry settlement in the middle of a tree plantation, where her dad worked, not far out of Perth. She wrote her black&write! fellowship-winning book Terra Nullius while travelling around Australia in a caravan. The Old Lie is her second novel.

About The Old Lie: Shane Daniels and Romany Zetz have been drawn into a war that is not their own. Lives will be destroyed, families will be torn apart. Trust will be broken. When the war is over, some will return to a changed world. Will they discover that glory is a lie? Claire G. Coleman’s new novel takes us to a familiar world to ask what we have learned from the past. The Old Lie¬†might not be quite what you expect.
