Join us to hear Fiona Kelly McGregor in conversation.

McGregor asks in her new brilliant novel, Iris: Who is Iris Webber? Is she a thief, a fighter, a wife, a lover, a musician, a worker or simply a big-hearted fool? Rollicking through the underbelly of 1930s sly-grog Sydney, Iris is a dazzling literary achievement from one of Australia’s finest writers. Based on actual events and set in an era of cataclysmic change, here is a fierce, fascinating tale of a woman who couldn’t be held back. Iris prevailed against the toughest gangsters of the day, defying police time and again. But was she guilty or innocent?
