A clever and original debut dusted with magical realism, A Lifetime of Impossible Days is the story of Willa Waters at age eight… and 33… and 93.

On one impossible day in 1965, eight-year-old Willa receives a mysterious box containing a jar of water and the instruction: ‘One ocean: plant in the backyard.’ So she does - and somehow creates an extraordinary time-slip that allows her to visit her future selves.

About the author

Tabitha Bird is a poet and writer who spent most of her time growing up in a garden in a bayside suburb of Queensland. Here she hid and told stories to ferns and weeds alike. Eventually, Tabitha did unexpected things like get older and teach primary school in Hong Kong and the USA.

She read stories to children like their lives depended on it and to this day she is quite sure that lives do depend on stories and stories on lives. Tabitha now resides in Boonah, rural Queensland, with her husband, three sons and her Chihuaha, Lion. A Lifetime of Impossible Days is her first published novel.

This event is presented in partnership with Penguin Random House Australia and Dymocks North Lakes.
