Mostly Books celebrates Australian Reading Hour with Pip Williams

When

Thursday 20 September
6.00pm – 7:30pm

Where

Mostly Books
119 Belair Rd,
Torrens Park SA 5062

To celebrate Australian Reading Hour this year, Mostly Books has invited Pip Williams to speak about her memoir, ‘One Italian Summer’. The book details a major sea change: Pip and her family up and left for a year to Italy.

‘One Italian Summer’ is a warm, funny and poignant story of a family’s search for a better way of living, in the homes and on the farms of strangers. Pip sleeps in a tool shed, feasts under a Tuscan sun, works like a tractor in Calabria and, eventually, finds the good life she’s always dreamed of – though not at all where she expected.

If you have ever dreamt of starting afresh or living la dolce vita abroad, this is the event for you!
