Gabrielle Wang: A Ghost in My Suitcase

When

Ghosts, secrets, travel and adventure – Gabrielle Wang’s spooky, page-turning young adult novel A Ghost in My Suitcase is now a thrilling theatre production.

It’s the story of 13-year-old Celeste, who travels to China to visit her grandmother and uncovers a family secret there. Ultimately, Celeste must learn to make use of her strange, powerful gift as a ghost-hunter.

Alongside the show’s run at Melbourne International Arts Festival, the book’s author Gabrielle Wang will appear at the Wheeler Centre to talk about the story’s journey from page to stage. She’ll also discuss the story’s themes of culture, identity and the paranormal, followed by an interactive writing workshop. Suitable for ages 8+ yrs.

Our bookseller at this event will be Sun Bookshop.

Presented in partnership with Melbourne International Arts Festival.
