This month’s book is, Shell by Kristina Olsson.  Shell is a bold and hauntingly beautiful portrait of art and life set amidst the turmoil of the 1960s and the dawning of a new era. It tells the story of three people living in Sydney: Pearl, a progressive journalist with a sad past who is trying to save her estranged teenage brothers from the draft; Axel, a young Swedish glassmaker trying to make sense of his new antipodean home; and Jørn Utzon, the famous architect behind the Sydney Opera House.

Booking Essential. Friends Members. (limited places available).  Includes refreshments and reading notes.
