Boffins Books are delighted to host Pulitzer Prize winning author Geraldine Brooks for an in-conversation event on her latest book, Horse, hosted by acclaimed radio presenter Gillian O'Shaughnessy.

About ‘Horse’: A discarded painting in a roadside clean-up, forgotten bones in a research archive, and Lexington, the greatest racehorse in US history. From these strands of fact, Geraldine Brooks weaves a sweeping story of spirit, obsession, and injustice across American history.

Australian-born Geraldine Brooks is an author and journalist who grew up in Sydney's western suburbs. In 1982 she won a scholarship to the journalism master's program at Columbia University in New York. Later she worked for the Wall Street Journal, where she covered crises in the Middle East, Africa and the Balkans. In 2006 she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in fiction for her novel March. Her novels Caleb's Crossing and People of the Book were both New York Times bestsellers, and Year of Wonders, People of The Book and The Secret Chord are international bestsellers, translated into more than 25 languages. She is also the author of the acclaimed nonfiction works Nine Parts of Desire and Foreign Correspondence.
