Meet the Author: Kaz Cooke

8.00

Join us at 6.30pm onTuesday 21st November as bestselling author-turned-history-detective Kaz Cooke reveals how she conjured up the amazing life of Ada Delroy, comedian and dancer. 

Ada and her troupe travelled the world with spectacular performances that made her a household name in Australia and New Zealand more than 100 years ago. This richly imagined memoir sports a fabulous cast of characters from our history, from Helena Rubinstein to Harry Houdini -- and Kaz will share with you some of the rare photos of real vaudevillians she discovered during her research.

Ada gives a voice to a gloriously entertaining heroine with a fighter’s instinct for survival and a penchant for high drama, one who uses all her wit and stage tricks of concealing and revealing to tell us her story. Step into an era when a woman had so few choices that living big – or living at all – called for dash, daring, and a heart-breaking sacrifice. Kaz will be signing copies of her books at this event.
