Readers & Writers Room

There are few contemporary novels set in Western Australia’s outback but three local authors are bucking that trend. In this session Karen Herbert (The River Mouth) leads a discussion with David Allan-Petale (Locust Summer) and Michael Trant (Wild Dogs) on how the wild rural landscape of Western Australia provided the perfect setting for their most recent books.
