Jane Harper: Exiles


Event Status

Spend an evening with internationally best-selling crime writer Jane Harper to celebrate the release of her latest novel featuring Detective Aaron Falk, Exiles.


Jane Harper is the award-wining author behind crime novels The Dry, Force of Nature, The Lost Man and The Survivors. In her upcoming release Exiles, Detective Aaron Falk returns to investigate the disappearance of a young mother from a festival in the South Australian wine-growing region. As Falk settles into the lush valley lifestyle, he begins to suspect the family left behind in this disappearance is more fractured than it seems.

At this event, you’ll have the opportunity to see Harper live and in conversation with host Kate Mildenhall. They’ll discuss Harper’s fairytale career story – from winning the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript for her debut novel The Dry, to its bestselling success and adaptation into a major film starring Eric Bana as Aaron Falk – as well as some of the dark questions lurking beneath the surface of Exiles. Spend a compelling evening with one of Australia, and the world’s, best crime writers.

This event will proceed on the public holiday on 22 September.
