Literature: The Caroline Chisholm Reading with Rachel Seiffert
- Mon 11 Dec 2017
- 6:30 pm
This event honours the memory of writer Caroline Chisholm (MA Creative Writing, 2013), who was a valued member of the CNW community. It will feature a reading from the best dissertation submitted by an MA student at the Centre in 2017, alongside a reading by Rachel Seiffert, a writer whose fiction is close in spirit to Caroline’s own novels in progress and her work at Greenpeace.
Rachel Seiffert’s first book, The Dark Room, (2001) was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, and made into the feature film Lore. In 2003, she was named one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists, and in 2011 she received the EM Forster Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Field Study, her collection of short stories published in 2004, received an award from PEN International. Her second novel, Afterwards (2007) and third novel The Walk Home (2014), were both longlisted for the Orange/Baileys Prize. Her books have been published in eighteen languages. She will read from her new novel, A Boy in Winter.
