Literary Lunch with Favel Parrett & Inga Simpson
 

We had a lovely lunch with Favel and Inga. A soul soothing and emotional balm to the horrendous few weeks experienced through the fires. If you get a chance make sure you read Favel’s latest novel There was Still Love, it’s a wondrous, heart-warming marvel of a book! <3

Thanks to Inga Simpson for her wonderful interviewing skills and to Favel for taking the time out of her VERY BUSY schedule to fit little old Moruya in!

We’re hoping to have some more Literary Events soon……finger’s crossed this bugger of a virus will let us!

Inga Simpson

We had a wonderful crowd at our event helping Inga Simpson launch her new children's book "The Book of Australian Trees". Thank you to Stuart Whitelaw for being the interviewer, SAGE Catering for the great food - yum, and a huge thank you to Emma and Rob at Mogendoura Farm; what a fantastic space for an event such as this. And thanks much Inga for giving us the opportunity to launch your book.

Elizabeth Farrelly

Columnist Elizabeth Farrelly brings her unique perspective as architectural writer and former city councilor to a burning question for our times: how will we live in the future? Can our communities survive pandemic, environmental disaster, overcrowding, government greed and big business?
Using her own adopted city of Sydney, she creates a roadmap for urban living and analyses the history of cities themselves to study why and how we live together, now and into the future.
Killing Sydney is part-lovesong, part-warning: little by little, our politics are becoming debased and our environment degraded. The tipping point is close. Can the home we love survive?

Dr Elizabeth Farrelly trained in architecture and philosophy, practiced in Auckland, London and Bristol, holds a PhD in urbanism from the University of Sydney, and is an Associate Professor (Practice) at the University of NSW Graduate School of Urbanism. She was born in Dunedin, New Zealand but has made Sydney her home since the late 1980s.                                          

Elizabeth is the author of several books, including Three Houses – a monograph on renowned architect Glenn Murcutt – is a Walkley-shortlisted journalist, critic and essayist and served as a Councillor for the City of Sydney from 1991 to 1995.
