Peter Burke in Conversation With Bill Bunbury

Friday 15th September, 1pm – 2pm at the Margaret River Library

Join WA author Peter Burke as he talks with local historian Bill Bunbury about his latest book ‘The Silk Merchant’s Son’, which is inspired by the history of WA missions and New Norcia.

Peter Burke is a Perth doctor and writer of Western Australian historical fiction. He was born in East Fremantle and educated at Catholic schools, starting with St Benedict’s in Applecross, which perhaps left its mark on him after all. His first novel, The Drowning Dream, a pearling mystery set in Broome in the early twentieth century, was shortlisted for The Australian/Vogel’s Literary Award and WA Premier’s Book Awards.

Light refreshments provided and books will be available to purchase.
