Author Talk – Debra Gavranich

22 October 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Girl Who Left

We warmly welcome Australian author Debra Gavranich, as she launches her inspiring debut novel, The Girl Who Left: From Croatia to the Canefields.

“The spirit of adventure lives strong in this book.” — GoodReads

About the book:
This is the migrant story of Australia, of courageous individuals taking the biggest risk of their lives often with little or no English. Their determination and hard work enable them to live with their sacrifices and overcome the profound loneliness of homesickness.

About the author:
Debra grew up on a sugarcane farm in Far North Queensland, travelled the world and now works as a physiotherapist in Cairns. She has always felt compelled to write her mother’s story, and this is the incredible result – her first novel.
