Perth Festival Presents
Literature Weekend in the City

Brit Bennett is one of the most important writers in America today, and after signing a record-breaking deal with HBO to produce The Vanishing Half, she will soon be a household name.

Set mainly in the 1950s, The Vanishing Half is an epic novel about sisters who choose different paths – one opting to pass as white and the other remaining black.

Join us for a conversation with Brit (appearing via live stream) about her writing craft and the run-away success of this powerful new novel.
