2:00pm - 3:30pm
Haven’t we all wished – at one time or another – that we could pack in the life we know and start afresh somewhere new? That an exciting adventure abroad might help us heal? In Amanda Hampson’s superbly crafted new domestic drama, The Yellow Villa, we meet two couples doing their best to make a small village in South-West France their home.

Amanda Hamspon is the best-selling author of The Olive Sisters and The French Perfumer and her new novel explores the ups and downs of swapping one life for another. The Yellow Villa is a delicious, dark, entertaining and, above all, human story full of surprising twists.

Amanda Hampson was determined to be a writer from an early age. Growing up in rural New Zealand, she moved to London in her twenties. She inherited a love of all things French from her mother, and has visited France many times over the past four decades. She has a special interest in the themes of place, family and the meanings of home. Eventually settling in Australia, she now calls Sydney’s Northern Beaches home.

Join us for a conversation that promises to deliver insights into her writing, her research into France, expat life and the flip side to 'la belle vie' - and why it's not all 'la vie en rose'!

Bookings are essential. Tickets are $10 and available in any Library branch or online - click on the EventBrite link below, or call us for more information
