Author Nicole Kelly discusses her book ‘Lament’ Past Event

Presented by Everybody Knows Books

A historical tale of Australia’s most notorious outlaws with a slight twist. Nicole Kelly breathes life back into Ned Kelly and expertly explores the hopes and ideals of a young man on the wrong side of the law, and the life he might have lived if he had escaped his past.

Nicole discusses the inspiration behind Lament, and will answer questions from the audience.
