Lost and Found Edition

When

In October at The Next Big Thing, we’ll explore themes of escape and discovery; estrangement and re-connection. It’s the Lost and Found edition, and we’ll be hearing new work from some incredible writers.

Kathryn Hind’s debut novel, Hitch, is about a young woman’s perilous hitchhiking journey through the Australian desert. Katy Warner’s Everywhere Everything Everyone is a high-concept YA novel about power and resistance. Tyson Yunkaporta’s Sand Talk: How Indigenous Thinking Can Save the World calls for a radical rethinking of the human relationship with the world we live in. And Lujayn Hourani’s essay, ‘Carmen, Hassad, and Every Dream I’ve Ever Had’, appears in the most recent edition of Voiceworks (#116 Pluto).

Readings will be our bookseller for this event.
