Canberra literary identity Jack Heath sits down at The Long Table for an afternoon of good food and conversation to coincide with the publication of his first book for adults, Hangman.

The popular YA author of some 19 books has created a terrifying criminal genius character in Timothy Blake, codename Hangman, for this mesmirising thriller and we can’t wait to hear all about it.

Join us for a two-course lunch as we discuss Hangman, getting into the criminal mindset, writing for different ages, writing at different ages, and maybe even Jack’s experience of only reading women writers for a year.

Please note this event is for ages 15 and up.

Tickets: $75

Entry includes a two course lunch, glass of wine or soft drink, tea or coffee and a copy of Hangman (RRP $29.99)


Jack Heath is the bestselling author of more than twenty novels, which have been translated into several languages, shortlisted for many awards, and optioned for film and TV. He wrote his debut novel in high school, and it was published when he was still a teenager. Hangman, his first book for adults is, according to Reviewers of Oz, ‘a gore-soaked butchering of some of the most stock-standard tropes of the crime genre. And it’s wonderful.’
