Booked Out: Geraldine Brooks at Montalto
Friday, 22 Jul 2022, 12:00pm - 03:00pm
This event is currently booked out.
Geraldine Brooks is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and journalist behind works such as March, Year of Wonders and Foreign Correspondence. Her latest release, Horse, is a sweeping narrative that weaves together three encounters with Lexington, the greatest racehorse in US history, to explore the legacy of racism and slavery in America.
Over a warming wintry lunch at Montalto, with produce straight from the kitchen garden, Brooks will join Santilla Chingaipe for a discussion about Horse, what drew her to the story of Lexington, as well as her own illustrious career.
Presented in partnership with Montalto.
