Who’s Afraid Book and Exhibition Launch
Join us for drinks and nibbles to celebrate the publication of Who’s Afraid? and the exhibition opening of The Art of Who’s Afraid?, hosted by That Movie Guy, Marc Fennell!
Who’s Afraid? is the debut novel from Maria Lewis, an exciting young Australian voice in paranormal fiction. Mixing elements of fantasy, mystery and romance, Who’s Afraid? is a must-read tale about one woman who takes on the world, one bite at a time.
The exhibition features 25 artists from around the world interpreting Who’s Afraid? through original pieces of art including Nicola Scott, BossLogic, Gooney Toons, Mel Stringer, Jak Skallywag, Anthony Calvert and more. Exhibition is on at The Wedge Gallery, Books Kinokuniya from January 14th to January 27th.
Maria Lewis got her start covering police rounds in a newsroom as a teenager and has been working as a professional journalist for the past 10 years. Making the switch from writing about murders to movie stars was not a difficult decision. A former reporter at The Daily Telegraph, she also wrote about all things film and entertainment related as the Showbusiness Reporter for The Daily Mail. Her work has appeared in the New York Post, Empire magazine, Huffington Post, The Sunday Mail, Junkee and BuzzFeed, to name but a few.
Based in Sydney, she lives in a house with too many movie posters and just the right amount of humans. Maria can often be found spending much money on comics, watching horror movies at stupid hours, inhaling books on modern feminist theory (aka anything Caitlin Moran touches) and holding on to the one belief she has had since she was five: that unicorns exist. She is most likely Mark Wahlberg’s future wife. Most likely.
