Queenscliff with Henry Reynolds

Henry Reynolds is one of Australia’s best-known historians, and recipient of countless national awards – most recently the Prime Minister’s Literary Award for Non-Fiction.

His pioneering work The Other Side of the Frontier argued that the settlement of Australia came with a high level of violence and conflict with Aboriginal people, which we have since chosen to ignore.

His new book, Forgotten War, continues the story – and in this special event he will discuss the wars fought on our own soil and why it is important to acknowledge them.

On the Road

We can’t wait to get back on the road again – bringing some of our favourite writers to regional Victoria. We’ll be packing up the car with books and authors, travelling from country to coast … and making sure Melbourne doesn’t get all the literary fun. Look out for our bootful of books – coming to a town near you.
