Once a year we open our book club to the author of our club read. This year we are excited to invite Jeremy Stanford along to talk about his book Rapture.
First time parents Tim and Nicole give birth to a baby with a halo. For a couple of atheists, it’s a bit of a shock. In what should be the most auspicious moment of their lives, the couple find themselves scrambling for what to do next. When the child performs his first miracle, they realise they may well have the second coming on their hands.
In his gripping and darkly comic debut novel, Stanford explores the fight for the ownership of God, and tries to imagine what the world would do if there really were a second coming.
Jeremy Stanford is an Australian actor and director, known for his role of Tick/Mitzi in the initial stage run of the musical Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
Spaces are limited for this event, and priority is given to book club members. If you would like to join Pictures & Pages book club "Read Between the Wines" please see us at the shop.
