Janette Turner Hospital, one of Australia’s most admired writers, speaks on a lifetime of writing – and teaching – literature.
For almost three decades, Janette Turner Hospital’s award-winning fiction has won her acolytes here and in the US, where she now resides. She returns to her native shores to talk about Forecast: Turbulence, her third collection of stories set on both continents, in which the weather functions as a metaphor for cataclysmic emotional events in the lives of the protagonists. In each story, Janette Turner Hospital reflects on a central question: how can we maintain equilibrium in a turbulent and uncertain world?
Janette Turner Hospital will be in conversation with the Wheeler Centre’s senior writer/editor, Jo Case.
Janette Turner Hospital is the author of eight novels and four short story collections, most recently Forecast: Turbulence. Her books have been published in multiple languages.
