Book Club With WellRead and Madelaine Lucas

  • 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm | Monday May 15, 2023
  • Good Chemistry | Ace Hotel Sydney
  • 47-53 Wentworth Ave.

As part of their quarterly series at Ace Hotel Sydney, WellRead presents a night with Madelaine Lucas in celebration of her highly anticipated debut novel, Thirst For Salt

“It’s in the water where she first sees him: a local man almost twenty years her senior. Adrift in the summer after finishing college, a young woman is on holiday with her mother in an isolated Australian coastal town. Finding herself pulled to Jude, the man in the water, she begins losing herself in the simple, seductive rhythms of his everyday life.

A magnetic and unforgettable story of desire and its complexities, and a powerful reckoning with memory, loss, and longing, Madelaine Lucas’s debut novel, Thirst for Salt, reveals with stunning, sensual immediacy the way the past can hold us in its thrall, shaping who we are and what we love.”

Madelaine Lucas is a senior editor of NOON and teaches fiction at Columbia University. She is from Sydney, Australia, and lives in Brooklyn.

 

RSVP to hello@wellread.com.au by 5 May. This is a free event but numbers are limited and demand is always high.
