Kate Grenville is, quite simply, one of Australia’s most celebrated writers.

In 2021, A Room Made of Leaves, was the winner of the Christina Stead Award, while The Secret River is widely considered to be a modern Australian classic.
Kate’s evocations of Australian colonial life are amongst the most vivid of modern historical fiction, and her most recent, Restless Dolly Maunder, is currently long-listed for both the UK’s Women’s Prize for Fiction and the Fiction category at the Indie Book Awards.

Across fiction and non-fiction, her writing has drawn in readers from around the globe, so join Melanie Kembrey to discover more about Kate’s craft, and of Kate’s own grandmother – Dolly Maunder herself.
