High Road to Reading, bringing authors to public libraries

Don your best 1950s haute couture threads and join Rosalie Ham, author of The Dressmaker, as she discusses her the bestselling novel that inspired the blockbuster movie starring Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth.

Rosalie will talk about the experience with turning her book into a film and share her insights of writing.

The Dressmaker is a gothic novel of love, hate and haute couture.

Sometime in the 1950s, Tilly Dunnage, a Paris couturier, returns to her home town of Dungatar having been expelled as a ten year old.

Her intention is to visit her mad mother Molly, then leave. Instead, she stays, colliding with her past and exacting revenge upon the people who
pilloried her.

When she does depart, she leaves behind a town ruined, and another past to flee.
