VENUE: Noosa Arts Theatre

Noosa alive! presents…
‘Horse’ Geraldine Brooks

Presenting Patrons – David and Kristin Williamson


Geraldine Brooks ‘In Conversation’ with Lisa Millar

From the Pulitzer Prize winning author of March and People of the Book comes a vivid and unique new novel for lovers of sweeping historical fiction. Gliding effortlessly across three places and three time settings – 1850s Kentucky, 1950s New York City and 2019 Washington DC – and with an incredible cast of characters, it’s a story that’s steeped in history, anchored in fact and has at its heart a fascinating unsolved mystery.

A discarded painting in a junk pile, a skeleton in an attic, and the greatest racehorse in American history: from these strands, a Pulitzer Prize winner braids a sweeping story of spirit, obsession, and injustice across American history.

‘Horse’ is the latest masterpiece from a writer with a prodigious talent for bringing the past to life.
