We are thrilled to announce a special event on 19 October with award-winning Australian writer Tim Winton in partnership with the University of Newcastle and supported by Penguin Random House. 

Tim will be speaking about his new novel Juice, which centres on two fugitives, a man and a child, who drive all night across a stony desert. As dawn breaks, they roll into an abandoned mine site. From the vehicle they survey a forsaken place – middens of twisted iron, rusty wire, piles of sun-baked trash. They’re exhausted, traumatised, desperate now. But as a refuge, this is the most promising place they’ve seen. The child peers at the field of desolation. The man thinks to himself, this could work.

Problem is, they’re not alone.

So begins a searing, propulsive journey through a life whose central challenge is not simply a matter of survival, but of how to maintain human decency as everyone around you falls ever further into barbarism.

MacLean’s Booksellers is supporting the event and Tim will be signing books on the night.
