reading & booksigning for "Breath"
Saturday, May 31 at 7:00 pm
Tim Winton is Australia’s best-loved novelist. His new work, "Breath," is an extraordinary evocation of an adolescence spent resisting complacency, testing one’s limits against nature, finding like-minded souls, and discovering just how far one breath will take you. It’s a story of extremes sport and extreme emotions. “Breath is a coming-of-age novel written with Tim Winton’s customary tenderness and vivid sense of place and psychological truth.” - Colm Toibin
Tim Winton was born in Perth, Western Australia, and is the preeminent Australian novelist of his generation. He has written twenty books, including the bestselling novels "Cloudstreet," "The Riders" (shortlisted for the Booker Prize), and "Dirt Music."
