Alice Campion: Author talks at Marrickville Library
6 February 2017
Under the collective pseudonym Alice Campion, four members of a Sydney book club will be discussing their latest novel The Shifting Light at Marrickville Library, on Wednesday 22 February.
More than six years ago, five fellow book club friends embarked on a journey to write a ‘21st Century Thorn Birds’. The Painted Sky, released in 2015, was the first Australian novel to be written by a book club and has since been published internationally, with ‘Alice’ appearing at events around the world.
Four members of Alice Campion have returned to write the highly anticipated sequel, The Shifting Light. A suspenseful page-turner that deftly explores themes of modern life in the outback, the novel brims with romance and intrigue. Nina Larkin has transformed her rundown outback property, The Springs, into a successful artists’ retreat; she’s won a distinguished art prize, and she’s living with her soulmate, trail-blazing grazier Heath Blackett. But the chance discovery of a portrait of her father, renowned artist Jim Larkin, makes her question everything.
Alice Campion is: Jenny Crocker a communications manager who uses her work to create positive change; Jane Richards a senior editor and journalist at Fairfax Media; Jane St Vincent Welch a film and documentary editor, and; Denise Tart a civil celebrant with a background in performance, comedy scriptwriting and event management.
