Book Launch: We Will Live and Then We Will See by Warwick Sprawson

We're pleased to welcome Award winning author, Warwick Sprawson, to the Athenaeum Library for the launch of a collection of 22 short stories, We Will Live and Then We Will See.

Described as humorous, eclectic and beautifully crafted, this short story collection encompasses the fantastic and the real, the dystopian and the sublime, the playful and the sombre. Warwick will be reading one of the stories from the book.

Doors open at 7:00pm, Thursday February 15.
