The shipwreck of the Batavia is a tale of mutiny, love, lust, a reign of terror, murder, sexual slavery, survival, retribution, rescue and more. And who better to tell it than Peter FitzSimons, one of Australia’s best selling writers?

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.
