Renowned author Marion Halligan’s books often include the great pleasures of food. Marion will speak about the importance of food as a theme in her prolific writing including The Point, about a fictitious restaurant. It is a novel of intricate complexity and wit about our appetites and desires, and the way they irrevocably shape the world.
