Charlotte Wood

When

How do we maintain friendships as we age? How do these friendships impact who we are – or who we become? And … exactly how should we grow old? Charlotte Wood asks these questions of aging and friendship in her highly-anticipated new novel, The Weekend – about three women in their 70s who gather to clean out the house of their friend Sylvie after her death. 

The lives and stories of women are at the core of Wood’s writing. The author of six novels and one book of non-fiction, Wood won the 2016 Stella Prize for her extraordinary novel The Natural Way of Things. She has been longlisted and shortlisted for the Miles Franklin Award, and was recently awarded a Member of the Order of Australia for her services to literature.

At Montalto in October, Wood will discuss mortality, female friendship and the dilemmas that face women as they age.

Presented in partnership with Montalto.

Antipodes Bookshop and Gallery will be our bookseller at this event.
