Join teacher and author of The Dressmaker, Rosalie Ham, as she discusses her new novel about love, justice and irrigation.

A darkly satirical tale about the residents of a small country town battling with the elements and one another, The Year of the Farmer is Rosalie at her best – unsentimental and wildly entertaining. This striking story is set in country NSW and told by an author with a keen understanding of life on the land.

Lindfield Bookshop will provide copies of the author's book for sale on the day.
