Join MC Nick Earls and the Griffith Review team for the launch of Griffith Review 58: Storied Lives – The Novella Project V at Brisbane’s Avid Reader Bookshop and Café.
Every life offers a unique story – but some lives stand out so distinctly they leave their mark on the world. How do some people make such a difference – and trigger change both at large and close to home?
Griffith Review 58: Storied Lives – The Novella Project V focuses on people who have effected a change in the world. It looks at the lives of others – real and imagined – that have created a narrative that resonates. Their stories, personal, political, scientific or cultural, help map change, and illustrate how an individual life can coalesce with history to leave an enduring mark.
