Regular price $5.00

Unit price per 

On Thursday 6 June from 6-8 pm Big River Distilling Co and Paperchain Bookstore Manuka will co-host Ginsights with guest author Victoria Purman.  Victoria is an Australian top ten and USA Today bestselling fiction author.  Her most recent novel, The Radio Hour, was released on 1 May 2024.  This work has been compared to Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus, and the Better Reading preview said it was: “Charming, funny and pointed.”

Victoria’s previous books A Woman’s Work, The Nurses’ War, The Women’s Pages, The Land Girls and The Last of the Bonegilla Girls have all been Australian bestsellers.

At Ginsights Victoria will talk about the research which inspired the book, including the historic role of writer Gwen Meredith in creating the popular radio serial Blue Hills, and the many other women who worked in those golden days of Australian radio broadcasting. Victoria will share what inspires her to bring the extraordinary lives of ordinary women to a contemporary audience.

All are welcome to come along to join this informal reader/writer conversation at Big River, Tenancy 3 Building 3, 1 Dairy Road Fyshwick. Use entry 2 off Dairy Rd and find us down near carpark P4.

We will be serving As the Sun Sets as our signature cocktail for this event, featuring Big River Dry Gin combined with Elderflower and Apricot liqueurs, alongside our full range of Big River cocktails and soft drinks. Complementary snacks will also be served.

Bookings required, ticket cost $5.
