We are particularly excited to have Suzanne Leal as our speaker for April. The author of novels The Teacher’s Secret and Border Street,
Suzanne is a lawyer experienced in child protection, criminal law and refugee law, the senior judge for the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards and a former judge of ‘The Nib’ Waverley Library Award for Literature. She is a reviewer for The Australian and a regular interviewer at Sydney Writers' Festival and other literary events.
Curiosity about hidden stories and secret lives drives Suzanne's writing. It sparked her interest in the lives of her Czech landlords, Fred and Eva Perger, who inspired her first novel, Border Street, which was recommended in the Asher Literary Award.
Curiosity, too, prompted her to explore the intrigues of fthe schoolyard and bring them to life in The Teacher's Secret. Suzanne grew up in Wollongong but now lives in Sydney with her husband, David, and her four children.
We look forward to a most stimulating event.
When : Saturday 1st April @ 2:30pm
Where: Family history centre auditorium
