Join us for the launch of S.G. Bryant’s latest novel, Taken In.

While researching his first novel, Boss, Bryant became fascinated by life in ‘marvellous Melbourne’ at the end of the nineteenth century.  At that time Melbourne, for so long Australia’s boom city on the back of the wool and gold booms, had been hit by a major recession in the early 1890s.  As a result it was a city of extreme contrasts, new wealth alongside growing unemployment and poverty, with consequent very significant social issues.

This is the setting for his new novel, Taken In, a crime mystery set in Melbourne in 1896.

Tickets: $10 (includes wine & cheese)
