Book Launch of Dorothy Porter's El Dorado

The book launch of Dorothy Porter’s new verse novel El Dorado will take place at the Arts Metro Building in Brisbane on Wednesday, 23 May. The evening will start at 6:00pm and will end around 8:30pm and there is a small entry charge. The event has been organised by the Brisbane’s Better Bookshops people and tickets can be arranged by visiting the website.

Now, I know there's a clash with the first State of Origin match at Suncorp Stadium but I'd imagine it will be sold out that night, so what better alternative than pop over and check out the book launch (It’ll be all bad for the Maroons anyway…)

The verse novel is not something that I am overly familiar with, but by all accounts El Dorado is an intense psychological thriller. Lovers of dark subject matter will be able to immerse themselves in the story of a serial killer whose victims are children. A wonderful review of the book can be found at M/C Reviews, I recommend having a read.
