Last week KSP writer- in- residence, Lee

LeeBattersbytalkLast week KSP writer- in- residence, Lee Battersby gave most generously to the appreciative audience at Mundaring Library. He spoke about how writing functions as an art form, how it is mediated through language (we don’t all see the same carrot), and how it is an art form that requires the reader to be co-creator. He spoke about his marvellous book, released last year, ‘Magrit’. This is a story about a girl who lives in a cemetery that has no designated entrance or exit. Lee explained that his son suffered a long period of potentially life-threatening illness. The book was written during this period, a little each day, with intense involvement and interest from his son. The book has sold untitledout and is due to be reprinted. Lee also treated his audience to a reading from his new work, ‘Ghost Tracks’. The audience was delighted by Lee, his work and his attitude of wonder.
