Gorgeous Girl: Descent Into Memoir

Willy Lit Fest

Event Date: 15 June 2019
Author / Presenters: Amanda Dunn, Mary K Pershall

Behind the happy facade children’s author Mary K Pershall’s book suggested, she was otherwise enmeshed into a personal descent into horror. Her daughter Anna, serving time in a Melbourne jail for murder, was the final act of a lifetime of calamity. For Mary, her only means of making sense of her reality was to write about it. Join journalist Amanda Dunn (The New Puberty) in conversation with Mary about her Herculean effort to keep her daughter, her Gorgeous Girl alive.
