Join author Suzy Zail in an interactive evening of conversation and story to launch her new Young Adult novel, Inkflower, a gritty exploration of family secrets, hope and healing.
Suzy will appear in conversation with the Melbourne Holocaust Museum's Manager of Adult Education Dr Simon Holloway. Learn what inspired Suzy to mine her own life as a daughter of a Holocaust survivor, and find out why she continues to seek stories that break her readers’ hearts.
I shouldn’t be kissing Adam Winter but it’s my best chance at forgetting. When I kiss him, I’m not a girl whose father is dying; I’m just a girl, kissing a boy.
Lisa Keller’s father has six months to live and a story he’s never told about his time in Auschwitz. A story she doesn’t want to hear, because she has secrets too. No one at school knows she is Jewish or that her Dad is sick. Not even her boyfriend. But that’s all about to change . . . and so is she.
"An inspiring Holocaust story of love, loss and hope." - Jayne Josem, CEO, Melbourne Holocaust Museum
"A remarkable and compelling book that beautifully explores the human experience of survival against all odds." - Sue Hampel OAM, Co-President, Melbourne Holocaust Museum
