The Watch Tower

We’ve created an Australian Classics book club, just for you – with special writerly guests each month. Last year’s hugely popular Australian Literature 101 set the scene by introducing ten texts our experts deemed unmissable Australian reading.

This year, we invite you on a brand new, leisurely stroll through our national literature, as we guide you through rediscovered classics and much-loved favourites alike.

In this edition, we’ll examine Elizabeth Harrower’s The Watch Tower.
