Museum to host Cold Light book launch
On Saturday 26 November, you’re invited to the launch of Cold Light, the latest novel by well-known Australian writer, Frank Moorhouse.
Cold Light has been billed as ‘the perfect conclusion to the Edith Campbell-Berry trilogy’. In Edith, Frank Moorhouse created a heroine who is spirited, industrious, intelligent, resourceful and eminently fascinating. In this final volume, Edith has decamped to Canberra with her husband, Ambrose, to start anew after the failure of the League of Nations. It’s 1950 and Canberra is being built to be a city of the future.
Come along to a Q&A session with author Frank Moorhouse and interviewer Professor Kim Rubenstein to learn more about Edith Campbell Berry, a turbulent period in Australia’s history and the prime ministers of the time as portrayed in Cold Light.
Frank Moorhouse was supported by an Australian Prime Ministers Centre Fellowship to research the historical events that provide the background to Cold Light. Professor Kim Rubenstein is Director of the Centre for International and Public Law at the Australian National University.
