Australian author, Belinda Alexandra, will speak about her latest novel Southern Ruby.

Set against the backdrop of social and cultural constraints of 1950s New Orleans, Southern Ruby is an enthralling tale of female empowerment, blending meticulous historical research, unforgettable characters and timeless themes. Alternating in time between the 1950s and the eve of Hurricane Katrina, Southern Ruby is also a tribute to New Orleans, a city heavy with music, drama, history and superstition, which has borne the tumults of race and class and the fury of nature, but has never given up hope.

Hear Belinda discuss her intensive research process and the inspiration behind Southern Ruby and her other best-selling novels.
