Abbotsford Convent's lush, gorgeous green gardens are always the perfect setting for relaxing with a good book and not having to even hold the book yourself but to be able to just sit back with a beverage and be read to is a little experienced luxury!
The short stories that will be read out loud include recent short stories by Cate Kennedy, Alice Munro and Edith Pearlman - all brilliant short story writers worth reading (or listening to in this case!).
A well-known, award-winning Australian short story writer, Cate Kennedy not only writes both fiction and non-fiction short stories, but also writes poetry, as well as having written a travel memoir. She's a born storyteller whose writing is described as affecting and piercing.
Alice Munro is hailed as the master of the contemporary short story and the Canadian short story writer has won a Nobel Prize for her craft. And, American author, Edith Pearlman's Honeydew - a collection of short stories - was named one of Oprah Winfrey's Top 19 Books to Read Right Now in 2015.
