The light on the water- Meet author Olga Lorenzo

Boroondara Library Service

Event Date: 6 September 2016
Author / Presenters: Olga Lorenzo presented by Boroondara Library Service

Anne Forster, recently divorced and trying to find her feet, takes her daughter Aida on an overnight bushwalk in the moody wilderness of Wilsons Promontory. Aida, who is six and autistic, disappears. Two years later her mother is arrested for her murder.

The light on the water is a provocative and unflinching novel of love, guilt and grief. Examining the best and the worst aspects of family life, this story asks difficult questions about society, the media, and our rush to judgement.

Olga Lorenzo teaches writing at RMIT University and previously worked as a journalist and sub-editor for the Melbourne Age.

The author's book will be available for purchase on the night.
