Meet Mark Brandi author of Wimmera

Boroondara Library Service

Event Date: 16 November 2017
Author / Presenters: Mark Brandi hosted by Boroondara Library Service

Mark Brandi has been published, broadcast and shortlisted in journals and competitions both locally and overseas. Originally from Marche, growing up Italian in a rural Victorian town influences much of his work. Mark graduated from a criminal justice degree and his career includes roles as a policy advisor and project officer in the Department of Justice, before changing direction and deciding to write.
Mark's writing has appeared in The Guardian, The Age, The Big Issue, and is often broadcast on Radio National. He is the winner of the 2016 UK Crime Writers' Association Debut Dagger for his first novel, Wimmera, which he developed during two residential fellowships at Varuna.
Wimmera is an unforgettable story that brings the darkness that hides in a country town vividly to light as it slowly reveals its devastating secrets.
