Talks@Willoughby presents Kate Mildenhall

Transcend time in this kaleidoscopic novel connecting four women’s stories across the ages.

Kate Mildenhall traverses time in her third novel The Hummingbird Effect.

Follow the lives of four women in vastly different times as they explore the threads that connect them, and the mysterious Hummingbird Project. Simultaneously tender and dynamic, The Hummingbird Effect grapples with climate change, survival, and the enduring power of female friendship, all set against the changing Victorian landscape.

Sit down with Kate as she explores the inspiration behind this genre-bending novel.

Presented as part of Sydney Writers Festival.

Available in the Library now and from all good booksellers such as Constant Reader.

Constant Reader Bookshop will have copies of the book for sale on the day.
