The Friends of the University of Adelaide Library
Barr Smith Discovery Series

The Friends of the University of Adelaide Library invite you to a free public talk with Susanna Moore on Thursday 23 July 2009 at 1.05pm.

Venue: Ira Raymond Exhibition Room, Barr Smith Library, University of Adelaide

Susanna Moore, award-winning author of ‘In the Cut’, which was made into a film directed by Jane Campion, is writer-in-residence in the University’s Creative Writing program. She will speak about her research on Daisy Bates as a possible subject for fiction or film, and the nature of research as both provocation and inspiration, as well as the temptations that ensue for a novelist while doing research – the pleasure of it, and the difficulty in giving it up to begin the work of fiction.

Moore has worked with the Daisy Bates Papers in the Barr Smith Library: a selection of materials will be on display at this event.

Bookings by Tuesday 21 July to:
Telephone: 8303 4064

Admission is free and open to the public.

Seating is limited.

Paul Wilkins
Deputy University Librarian
