Larissa Behrendt in conversation on After Story

Join the State Library of NSW for the first B List book club event for 2022, as they welcome author Larissa Behrendt to talk about her new book After Story.

When Indigenous lawyer Jasmine decides to take her mother, Della, on a tour of England’s most revered literary sites, Jasmine hopes it will bring them closer together and help them reconcile the past.

Twenty-five years earlier the disappearance of Jasmine’s older sister devastated their tight-knit community. This tragedy returns to haunt Jasmine and Della when another child mysteriously goes missing on Hampstead Heath. As Jasmine immerses herself in the world of her literary idols — Della is inspired to rediscover the wisdom of her own culture and storytelling. But sometimes the stories that are not told can become too great to bear.

Ambitious and engrossing, After Story celebrates the extraordinary power of words and the quiet spaces between. We can be ready to listen, but are we ready to hear?

Join Bri and Larissa as they explore the true art of storytelling with humour, love and hope.

This event is online (free) and in-person ($20). Registration is essential.
