Come and meet Mira Robertson

Come and meet Mira Robertson
Saturday the 2nd of June, 2pm Ballarat Books, 15 Armstrong Street North, Ballarat
Mira is the author of 'The Unexpected Education of Emily Dean'

The novel begins in 1944 as a young Emily is dispatched from Melbourne to the family property in rural Victoria.

Funny, wry and affecting 'The Unexpected Education of Emily Dean' is a charming coming of age novel about desire, deceit and self discovery.

Mira herself grew up in country Victoria and her story beautifully expresses the time and place as the young Emily discovers that life and love are not always what they seem.

Mira is also an award-winning screenwriter and has published short fiction. Her feature film credits include the multi award-winning films Only the Brave and Head On, co-written with director Ana Kokkinos.
