For those in Wellington (NZ) tomorrow:

THE HOPE FAULT — mapping family and faultlines through fiction
Tracy Farr in conversation with Simon Nathan
Tuesday 9 May, 12.10pm – 1.00pm
Te Ahumairangi ground floor National Library
Corner of Aitken and Molesworth Street, Thorndon

Tracy Farr’s latest novel, The Hope Fault, draws imaginatively on geological metaphors. The title is a real feature which you can see in the Unfolding the Map exhibition. The book explores the faultlines that run under the surface of human relationships, and it’s also about uncertainty — the unsettling idea that the earth might shift, literally or metaphorically, at any time. The Hope Fault is a novel that — like its author — finds poetry and beauty in science, and pattern in landscape.

In this event, novelist Tracy Farr discusses the ideas and inspiration behind her writing with geologist Simon Nathan.

Tracy Farr is a Wellington writer with a scientific background. She won the Sunday Star-Times Short Story Award in 2014, and her debut novel The Life and Loves of Lena Gaunt was long listed for Australia’s Miles Franklin Literary Award the same year. The Hope Fault is her second novel. More information about Tracy from her website, www.tracyfarrauthor.com<http://www.tracyfarrauthor.com/>
