Book Launch: A Portrait of Alice as a Young Man by Ender Baskan
A book launch with readings by local writers and poets.
A Portrait of Alice as a Young Man follows the author’s despair and euphoria as he journeys to the heart of the continent with his partner, their unborn child and his best friend.
Together they drive from their home in Melbourne to a hut on the edge of Alice Springs where they encounter a new vision of Australia, their lives, and their futures.
A Portrait of Alice as a Young Man is a rhapsodic novel about being and becoming — becoming an artist, becoming a parent and being in Australia.
With readings by:
- Ender Başkan
- Gabriel Curtin
- Olga Kotnowska
- Ania Walwicz
This event is taking place on the stolen land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to elders past, present and becoming and recognise that sovereignty was never ceded.
