Author talk: Treasure & Dirt by Chris Hammer

Author Chris Hammer standing against a natural Australian landscape

On 29 October at 5:30 pm, Australian author Chris Hammer will be live in conversation with Tasmanian author Heather Rose, discussing Chris’ latest novel Treasure & Dirt.

Chris Hammer will be dialling in from Canberra, while Heather Rose will be in-person at Hobart Library… and you’re invited!

Chris is the bestselling author of Scrublands, and Treasure & Dirt centres around the story of small town, Finnigans Gap, where an opal miner is found dead and decaying in a mine.

A story of opals and redemption, Treasure & Dirt is a standalone thriller by a leading author in Australian Noir.

If you can’t make it to Hobart Library for the event, it will be livestreamed at select libraries across Tasmania.

Registrations for this event are essential, as capacity will be limited due to Covid-19 restrictions.
