Day of the Triffids - anniversary event

Revisit John Wyndham's 1951 hit novel The Day of the Triffids in this lively Botanica Lumina event.
Hear some of Australia's most celebrated authors as they read excerpts from the post-apolocalyptic novel, and join their conversation about the impact of the book on the science fiction and dystopian genres.

Located outside, you will be surrounded by plants as you learn how the book influenced their own writing, and hear their reflections on writing about plants and the environment in contemporary literature.

Inspiration will abound as you absorb the beautiful botanical setting for this relaxed summertime event.

The Day of the Triffids was published in December 1951. At this 70th anniversary event you will hear from Sean Williams (author of the Twinmaker Series and Impossible Music), Jennifer Mills (author of Dyschronia and The Airways) and Claire G. Coleman (author of Terra Nullius).

This is a Writers SA event.
The Botanica Lumina program is supported by Major Partner SA Power Networks.
