Acclaimed novelist Charlotte Wood is also a passionate home cook – and her latest book, Love and Hunger, is a warm and lovely celebration of the pleasures of simple food, well made. It’s the perfect antidote to this age of celebrity chefs and food as fetish – and a very personal look at the cultural comforts of the kitchen.

Lorin Clarke, co-host of Triple R’s Aural Text will be in conversation with Charlotte Wood.

Book tickets at GPAC box office, 50 Lt Malop St, Geelong or over the phone on 5225 1200.

On the Road

We can’t wait to get back on the road again – bringing some of our favourite writers to regional Victoria. We’ll be packing up the car with books and authors, travelling from country to coast … and making sure Melbourne doesn’t get all the literary fun. Look out for our bootful of books – coming to a town near you.
