Holden Sheppard: Pushed to the Limits

The Wheeler Centre

Event Date: 4 August 2022
Author / Presenters: Holden Sheppard, Ellie Marney

Thursday 4 August 2022, 1:00pm–2:00pm

Adolescence is all about transformation, risk, passion – but what happens when young people are pushed to their limits?

Author Holden Sheppard has been widely acclaimed for his YA novels, which explore these limits with nuance and compassion. In his new book, The Brink, a group of schoolies confront a life-changing tragedy on a trip they’ll never forget. In Sheppard’s award-winning debut novel (and its forthcoming television adaptation) Invisible Boys, three teenage boys come to terms with their homosexuality in a town where queerness is invisible.

Join Sheppard in conversation with Ellie Marney as they discuss the jagged edges of adolescence.
