Coming up at Muse
Join us at Muse's Long Table for a wonderfully wacky, very special Sunday Salon high tea in celebration of the fabulous, finally-available-in-Australia anthology Mad Hatters and March Hares: New stories of Alice in Wonderland.
For the third year in a row we’re delighted to partner with the Canberra International Music Festival to present the CIMF Festival @ Muse! Join Claire Edwardes (percussion) and Ned McGowan (flutes - yes, plural) for a late night recital featuring two of the festival’s most avant-garde performers.
The author of seven novels and two collections of stories, Gail Jones is one of Australia’s most celebrated writers. Her mesmerising new novel The Death of Noah Glass tells a story about parents and children, and explores the overlapping patterns that life makes.

This is the story of Bri’s journey through the Australian legal system.
