Author Talk with Stephanie Parkyn
December 4 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Author Stephanie Parkyn will be at the Devonport Library to launch her new book Josephine’s Garden on Wednesday December 4. Stephanie’s first novel Into the World (published in 2017) was recently longlisted for the 2019 Tasmania Book Prize.
Josephine’s Garden is ’…a captivating story of love, nature and identity in Napoleon’s France.’
‘France, 1794. In the aftermath of the bloody end to the French Revolution, Rose de Beauharnais stumbles from prison on the day she is to be guillotined. Within a decade, she’ll transform into the scandalous socialite who marries Napoleon Bonaparte, become Empress Josephine of France and build a garden of wonders with plants and animals she gathers from across the globe.’
Co-hosted with the Devonport Bookshop.
