State Buildings and writingWA welcomes Amanda Curtin to host a Literary Afternoon Tea as she celebrates the launch of her book Kathleen O’Connor of Paris.

In 1906, Kathleen O’Connor left conservative Perth, where her famous father’s life had ended in tragedy. She had her sights set on a career in thrilling, bohemian Paris. More than a century later, novelist Amanda Curtin faces her own questions, of life and of art, as she embarks on a journey in Kate’s footsteps.

Part biography, part travel narrative, this is the story of an artist in a foreign land who, with limited resources and despite the impacts of war and loss, worked and exhibited in Paris for over forty years.

Hosted in The Mark, The Treasury Lounge and Bar team will be serving their spring afternoon tea, featuring a selection of sweet and savoury treats that highlight Western Australian produce.

Our event partners, Boffins Books, will be on hand with copies of the book for you to purchase.

$60 per person, served with JING tea or Mano a Mano coffee
$75 per person, served with tea or coffee and a glass of Vasse Felix Blanc de Blancs
$85 per person, served with tea or coffee and a glass of Taittinger Brut NV

Menu subject to change due to seasonal availability.
Please book tickets with care, as we do not offer refunds or exchanges.
