Don your best haute couture threads and join Rosalie Ham – author of The Dressmaker – as she discusses her novel and how it was turned into a Hollywood blockbuster.
Rosalie will be at Swan Hill Regional Library next Thursday, 22 June.
The Dressmaker is a story set in the 1950s, when Paris couturier Tilly Dunnage returns to her home town of Dungatar having been expelled as a 10-year-old. She plans to visit her mad mother Molly, then leave. But she stays, colliding with her past and exacting revenge upon the people who denounced her.
In 2015, the story was turned into a film starring Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth.
Council’s Cultural Development and Libraries Manager Camille Cullinan encouraged lovers of the book, the film and fashion to come along next Thursday.
“This will be such a fun afternoon. Rosalie will share her insights of writing and what it was like turning her book into a film,” she said.
“We’ve also got a fabulous display of 1950s fashion at the Library, thanks to our staff, Council staff, their families and the Swan Hill Theatre Group, who all donated items.”
The event will be held on Thursday, 22 June at 2.30pm. Light refreshments will be provided. Please book your place by contacting the Library on 5036 2480.
The event is coming to Swan Hill thanks to a partnership between Swan Hill Regional Library, Gannawarra Shire Council, the State Library of Victoria and the High Road to Reading.
Rosalie will also speak at an event in Kerang on Thursday at 7pm.
When: Thursday, 22 June from 2.30 to 3.30pm
