Author Chat and Writing Workshop with Dr Rachel Matthews

Join us for an evening with Melbourne author and writing lecturer, Dr Rachel Matthews, at the Ampersand café and bookstore!

Enjoy a spirited discussion about Dr Matthews' latest tragicomedy (her third novel), 'Never Look Desperate,' hailed by the Guardian as one of the best new Australian fiction works of 2023. 

It’s a tale that explores the wild frontier of relationships in later life and the absurdity of despair. It also features a widow misbehaving and a spiritual cruise ship. 

For just $25, enjoy a fun conversation, glass of wine and the chance to win a copy of ‘Never Look Desperate’. There’s also an optional writing task!
