Former Australian Antarctic Arts Fellow, Favel Parrett, published her second novel, When the night comes, in August 2014. The book tells the story of a young girl, her brother and their mother, after they move to Hobart and make friends with one of crew of the former Antarctic resupply ship, Nella Dan.

The book is the direct result of an Arts Fellowship to Davis station in 2012, to assist Ms Parrett in her research about the Nella Dan. Before her fellowship, Ms Parrett interviewed many past crew and expeditioners who travelled on the Nella Dan
