Chat Salons: Every Friday in August 2022

Last year, HNSA introduced chat salons where participants could connect with authors in a Zoom chat room to discuss history, books, and the writing craft. The salons were so popular we’re continuing the fun in 2022. The sessions are informal and designed for you to ‘get to know’ an author from the comfort of your own home. You can converse directly to them, communicate via the chat function, or simply ‘lurk and listen’. Whatever suits!

Our Chat Salons will run for an hour on Friday nights at 7.30pm throughout August, so it’s the ideal time to get cosy with your choice of tipple and join the discussion about your favourite time periods and topics with some of Australia’s best authors.

The 2022 Chat Salons include:

Price: $30 per salon
