Literature & Ideas
Presented in association with Fremantle Arts Centre
‘Within the impossible is devotion.’ In her latest book, Devotion, the acclaimed author of Burial Rites and The Good People takes us on a journey from 19th century Prussia across the ocean to South Australia for a story of religious persecution, whale song and a love without boundaries.
Join Hannah Kent as she discusses the link between belief and truth and weaving folklore, legend and research into the most compelling, original and magical of stories.
Hannah will appear in person subject to border restrictions. If these change she will appear via live stream.
Hannah’s first novel, the international bestseller, Burial Rites (2013), was translated into over 30 languages and won the ABIA Literary Fiction Book of the Year, the Indie Awards Debut Fiction Book of the Year, the ABA Nielsen Bookdata Booksellers Choice Award, the Victorian Premier's People's Choice Award and the FAW Christina Stead Award. It is currently being adapted for film by Sony TriStar. Hannah’s second novel, The Good People (2016) was also translated into many languages and is currently being adapted for film by Aquarius Productions.
