Open invitation: Annaleese Jochems In Conversation

March 6, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join New-Zealand sensation Annaleese Jochems in conversation at the Younger Sun to discuss her debut novel, Baby. Cynthia is twenty-one, bored and desperately waiting for something big to happen. Her striking fitness instructor, Anahera, is ready to throw in the towel on her job and marriage. With stolen money and a dog in tow they run away and buy ‘Baby’, an old boat docked in the Bay of Islands, where Cynthia dreams they will live in a state of love.

Annaleese Jochems was born in 1994 and grew up in Northland. She won the 2016 Adam Prize from the International Institute of Modern Letters and the 2018 Hubert Church Best First Book Award for Fiction for Baby, which is her first book.
