Craig Silvey Author Tour 2020: Honeybee

 

After an eleven-year-wait, Honeybee triumphs as a heartbreaking, life-affirming coming-of-age novel from beloved Australian author Craig Silvey, set in contemporary Western Australia.

Late in the night, fourteen-year-old Sam Watson steps onto a quiet overpass and climbs over the rail. At the other end of the same bridge, an old man, Vic, smokes his last cigarette—and a fateful connection is made.

To celebrate the release of Honeybee, Craig will do a series of real-life events in his home state of WA, alongside a set of intimate virtual events with some great in conversation partners.
