Book Launch: Flame Tip

Date and time: 23rd March 2017 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Location: Fullers Bookshop, 131 Collins Street, Hobart Tasmania

Author Karenlee Thompson launches her new short story collection Flame Tip (Hybrid Publishers) at Fullers Bookshop in Hobart.

February 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Tasmanian Black Tuesday bush fires. Flame Tip will resonate with Australians, fire being elemental in our consciousness, and with Tasmanians in particular who may recognise themselves and their surroundings within the lines of fiction.

Flame Tip is a slim collection of short fictions that explore different realities and perceptions arising from the Tasmanian bushfires. The pieces in this collection are as diverse in subject matter (infidelity, love, suicide) as they are in length. Despite the horror of one day of infernal terror, these stories reveal nuances of character and place through resilience, empathy, honesty and humour.

Karen will also be running some workshops at Hobart LINC and Rosny LINC during March. Keep an eye on the TWC website and LINC events pages for details.
