This Star Won't Go Out: The Life and Words of Esther Grace Earl

Author: Esther Earl

Author: Lori Earl

Author: Wayne Earl

SKU: 9780141354033

Diagnosed with thyroid cancer at the age of twelve, Esther (Persian for 'Star') Earl was an exceptionally bright and talented - but very normal - teenager.  She lived a hope-filled and generous, outwardly focused life as she navigated her physical decline with grace.  A cheerful, positive and encouraging daughter, sister and friend, Esther died in 2010, shortly after turning sixteen, but not before inspiring thousands through her growing online presence.

This unique memoir collects Esther's journals, fiction, letters and sketches.  Photographs and essays by family and friends help to tell Esther's story, along with an introduction by award-winning author John Green, who dedicated his international bestseller The Fault in Our Stars to her.

'Just be happy, and if you can't be happy, do things that make you happy.  Or do nothing with the people that make you happy.'  Esther Earl

Tim Winton In Conversation

For over thirty years, Tim Winton has written novels in which the natural world is as much a living presence as any character. This October Tim will be appearing in-conversation for two special events (Perth and Melbourne only) to share his personal relationship with the Australian landscape, how it came to be, how it has determined his ideas, his writing and his life. Both events will be followed by a book signing.
