Book Launch – Fat Chance

Brunswick Bound

Event Date: 14 March 2024 06:00 PM to 14 March 2024 07:30 PM
Author / Presenters: Kent MacCarter
Event Venue: Brunswick Bound

In Fat Chance, Kent MacCarter investigates variations on how non-fiction can be reported, taking an uncanny look into sole survivors of major airline crashes, a memoir approach at the surgical complication where an instrument is left behind in a body cavity after surgery, a recount of marketing tactics for children's toys and more. Here, the journalistic and the poetic collide to liberate language from truth so you can wander in the wide, bountiful space between. With its irony and absurdity dialled up to the sublime, you will be confronted by this feel-bad book of the year. The book will be launched by Bella Li, and this event will also feature a reading from Micaela Sahhar. Free to attend, no need to RSVP. Drinks provided!
