The 2012 T.A.G. Hungerford Award winning novel The Weaver Fish will be launched at the Fremantle Arts Centre at 6:30pm on Tuesday 4 March.
Author Robert Edeson encouraged people to come along to meet himself and champion of WA arts Diana Warnock, who will launch the book.
‘For me, it will be a celebration, and a milestone in the book’s passage to life,’ Edeson said.
The Weaver Fish is an exciting quest novel, crime thriller and cryptic puzzle featuring Cambridge linguist Edvard Tossentern. Presumed dead, Edvard reappears after a balloon crash. His astonishing discovery about a rare giant condor will throw friends and colleagues in the path of an international crime ring.
Since winning the 2012 T.A.G. Hungerford Award, Edeson has seen his work go from manuscript to published book within a year.
Edeson said winning the award gives first-time authors like himself the opportunity to get noticed in the publishing industry, and becoming a published author is a fantastic feeling.
‘I’m not sure I’m completely connected to the feeling even a year after the prize giving,’ he said.
‘It just feels completely wonderful to be recognised by the judges and to get so much support from Fremantle Press.’
The 2012 T.A.G. Hungerford Award was presented with the support of the Friends and Family of the late Bill Warnock in partnership with writingWA, The West Australian and Fremantle Press.
