Alien Shores

Alien Shores edited by Sharon Rundle and Meenakshi Bharat published by Brass Monkey UQP, with stories by Linda Jaivlin, Amitav Ghosh, Susanne Geray, Arnold Zable, Andrew KwongGeoffrey Rush, in his speech as Australian of the Year, put out a call to the writers of Australia, 

saying that he wanted to see the ‘stories of people wanting to come here at great peril to their lives, 
with such extraordinary bravery’, adding that: ‘we’re not finding that human scale in the story and 
I think it’d be good if we did that because I think people would discuss the arguments 
with less overly emotive responses to primal knee-jerk reactions.’

Alien Shores is a cross Indian-Australian anthology of renowned Australian and Indian authors and a powerful response to Geoffrey Rush’s call.

To be launched at The Hughenden with special guest The Indian Consul General and authors Linda Jaivlin, Rosie Scott, Susanne Gervay, Sharon Rundle, Meenakshi Bharat, Michelle Cahill, Andrew Kwong … hosted by Roanna Gonsalvez

I'm a writer committed to kids in particular. Adults are good too. Want to bring hope through story to my readers. Awarded an Order of Australia, Lady Cutler Award and a Lifetime International Award for Literacy for my body of work, spreading literacy is really important. I'm head of SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand, patron of Monkey Baa Theatre, Ambassador for the Premier's Reading Challenge, Writer Ambassador for Room to Read ... among other roles. I also love heritage and adapting to enhance the lives of people today, which is why I restored The Hughenden Hotel 1870s and The Residences Centennial Park - the only homes in the parklands which are open now for accommodation, events and lots of nature.
