Join Vre Books to celebrate the launch of its first title Forced Rhubarb by Gabriel Curtin.

There will be drinks, music, revolution and readings by:

  • Ender Başkan
  • Elizabeth Bryer
  • Gabriel Curtin

Forced Rhubarb is a novella in mosaic form, rummaging between qualities of light and moods of buoyancy and grief.

Ender Baskan is the author of essays, poetry, letters and postcards. He was awarded a 2014/15 Marten Bequest Travelling Scholarship for Prose. Among his prime obsessions are immigration, revolution, and the Australian dream.

Elizabeth Bryer is a writer and translator. She will read from her novel-in-progress, From Here On, Monsters, which is forthcoming from Picador in mid-2019.

Gabriel Curtin is a writer and artist.

This event is taking place on the stolen land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging and recognise that sovereignty was never ceded.
