Book signing A Letter From Paris


When Louisa Deasey received an email from a woman in Paris about a stack of letters written in the year 1949 about her father, a story of lost romance, hidden art, post-war exploits and her late father’s dazzling life began to unfold.

From the libraries of Australia to the streets of London and Paris and a poet’s villa in the South of France, Louisa unearths a portrait of a fascinating man, and many previously unknown connections between Australia and post-war France.

Note: The exhibition, A Letter From Paris, will be on show for the entire month of November in our Media Center.
