Peter Carey – A Long Way From Home

Tuesday, March 6, 7pm
St. Louis County Library HQ

Two-time Booker Prize-winning author, Peter Carey presents a wildly exuberant, wily new novel that circumnavigates 1954 Australia, revealing as much about the country as it does about three audacious individuals who take part in the infamous 10,000-mile race, the Redex Trial. This thrilling high-speed tale is often funny, even more so as the world gets stranger. Set in the 1950s, this is a world Americans will find surprisingly familiar: black, white, who we are, how we got here, and what we did to each other along the way.

This event is presented by the St. Louis County Library. For more information, please call 314-994-3300.
