Event 21 March 2024

Prepare to enter into the captivating world of "The Glass House" as South Perth Libraries and Dymocks proudly present an exclusive evening with acclaimed authors Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist on May 9, 2024.

Held at the South Perth Community Centre, this Special Edition event promises to be an enlightening and engaging event for literature enthusiasts and mental health advocates alike.

In their latest collaborative effort, Simsion and Buist have crafted a gripping narrative that explores the complexities of mental health through the eyes of psychiatry registrar Doctor Hannah Wright.

Set in the tumultuous environment of Menzies Hospital, "The Glass House" offers a candid portrayal of the challenges faced by medical professionals dealing with a spectrum of psychiatric cases. From the common to the bizarre, the humorous to the tragic, this novel promises to leave a lasting impact on its readers.

Join us as Graeme Simsion, renowned for his bestselling novel "The Rosie Project," and Professor Anne Buist, a leading expert in women's mental health, share insights into their creative process and the themes addressed in "The Glass House."

From the delicate balance of humour and seriousness to the importance of destigmatising mental health issues, this event promises a thought-provoking discussion that transcends the pages of the book.

Light refreshments will be served, and attendees will have the opportunity to purchase copies of the novel and have them signed by the authors.

Mark your calendars and join us for an unforgettable literary experience.
