6:00 - 8:00 pm: Avid Reader Bookstore
Venue address: 139 Boundary Street, West End, Brisbane
Kristina Olsson (prize-winning author of 'Boy, Lost') was generous in her praise for 'Grace's Table' at Thursday night's booked out event at Avid Reader Bookstore. She congratulated Sally for creating a credible elderly character in Grace and for her deft handling of themes about family, ageing, marriage and friendship in a story where food is a character itself. Sally responded by sharing stories behind the writing of 'Grace's Table' to include her thoughts on the power of food to evoke memories and what food says about those people who deliver it and those who receive it. The night concluded with a book signing, champagne and canapés.
