Writers Live - Kate Grenville discusses One Life with Susan Duncan
30th Apr '15 @ Berkelouw Mona Vale


Default_kate_grenville

You are invited to meet Kate Grenville when she discusses One Life: My Mother's Story with Susan Duncan.

When Kate Grenville's mother Nance died, she left behind many fragments of memoir. These were the starting point for One Life, the story of a woman whose life spanned a century of tumult and change. In many ways her story echoes that of many mothers and grandmothers, for whom the spectacular shifts of the twentieth century offered a path to new freedoms and choices. In other ways Nance was exceptional. In an era where women were expected to have no ambitions beyond the domestic, she ran successful businesses as a registered pharmacist, laid bricks for the family home, and discovered her husband's secret life as a revolutionary.
