Wal Walker at Books of Buderim close to maroochydore

Morning tea with Wal Walker, author of Jane and D’Arcy

Friday, August 4 at 10 AM – 1 PM

On the 200 anniversay of Jane Austen’s death(1775-1817) Australian author Wal Walker makes the groundbreaking claim that colonial surgeon D’Arcy Wentworth (1762-1827) was the love of her life.
Austen readers have long detected the complex emotional experience revealed in her writing is at odds with the portrait created by relatives of an unworldly, withdrawn, utterly respectable spinster aunt.

By juxtaposing extensive research into Wentworth’s life with the emotions, characters and events in Austen’s writing, Walker makes a very creditable case for the Irish-born Sydney colonial doctor as the object of her passionate love.

Come and meet Wal Walker before he heads of to Sydney and touring to discuss this complex love affair and other interesting facts from this time period.
