Join us to celebrate the release of "The Modern", a debut novel by Anna Kate Blair. Anna will be in conversation with Kate Mildenhall, celebrated author of three novels, including the just released and critically acclaimed, "The Hummingbird Effect". Set in the pristine, precarious world of MoMA, "The Modern" is a brilliantly wry and insightful debut about art, sexuality, commitment and whether being on the right path can lead to the wrong place. Anna Kate Blair's essays and short stories have appeared in Cordite, Slow Canoe, Archer, Meanjin, The Big Issue's Fiction Edition, Landfall, The Lifted Brow and other publications. Anna has won awards including the Wyndham Short Story Prize, the AAWP Slow Canoe Creative Nonfiction Prize and the Warren Trust Award for Architectural Writing. She holds a PhD in History of Art and Architecture from the University of Cambridge and has previously herself worked at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. She is currently Program and Partnerships Manager at Writers Victoria.
