When

Wednesday 17 November from 12:30pm to 1:30pm

Thomas Keneally has been observing, reflecting on and writing about Australia and the human condition for well over fifty years.

In this talk, Tom draws on a lifetime of engagement with the great issues of our recent history and his own moments of discovery and understanding, to share with us his passions, memories and demons.

In his latest book, A Bloody Good Rant, Tom has written with unbounded joy of being a grandparent, and with intimacy and insight about the prospect of death and the meaning of faith. He is outraged about the treatment of Indigenous Australians and refugees, and argues fiercely against market economics and the cowardice of climate change deniers. And he introduces us to some of the people who have dappled his life.

Join Tom via Zoom for this special event – a chance to hear from and ask questions of the great man behind some of Australia’s most treasured literary works.

 Free online event – everyone welcome!
