Meet Local Author: Kathryn Hore

Eastern Regional Libraries

Event Date: 13 May 2023
Author / Presenters: Kathryn Hore

10:30 AM SATURDAY 13TH MAY 2023

Come and join us at Bayswater Library to meet local author of "The Stranger" Kathryn Hore.

The Stranger is a feminist, dystopian western, in which the ‘Man With No Name’ turns out to be a woman, and the town with guilty secrets is not quite what it seems. Kathryn Hore grew up watching too many revisionist westerns, falling early for their enigmatic protagonists – that figure of the stranger riding into town, with ambiguous morals and dubious agenda. Yet these were not stories which had much room for women, especially young suburban girls from Melbourne.

The Stranger is a novel that challenges and interrogates genre, and Hore considers how we as readers and writers make room for ourselves in otherwise hostile fictional worlds, to claim our own space.
