Meet Amanda Niehaus
6:30pm to 7:30pm
Young adults, Adults, Seniors
The rains come to Brisbane just as Elise and Dan descend into grief. Elise, a scientist, believes that isolation and punishing fieldwork will heal her pain. Her husband Dan, a writer, questions the truths of his life, and looks to art for answers. Worlds apart, Elise and Dan must find a way to forgive themselves and each other before it’s too late.
An astounding debut novel that forensically and poetically explores the intersections of art and science, sex and death, and the heartbreaking complexity of love. Join scientist, cancer survivor and author Amanda Niehaus as she discusses the writing of her first novel, The Breeding Season, science and scientists in fiction and the importance of having cake and eating it, too.
