Members Lounge - Book Club - Killing for Country by David Marr

Members Lounge - Book Club - Killing for Country by David Marr
Starts: 28 Oct 2024 at 10:00 AM
Ends: 28 Oct 2024 at 11:30 AM

Publisher Black Inc. Books describes this as "a richly detailed saga of politics and power in the colonial world – of land seized, fortunes made and lost, and the violence let loose as squatters and their allies fought for possession of the country – a war still unresolved in today's Australia."

Our book club is designed for family historians. We will read both fiction and non-fiction and share our opinions. Highbrow, lowbrow - we do not care as long as we are reading good writing and learning something along the way.

The Book Club events are Members Only events. Non-members are encouraged to have a look at all of the activities of the society. In particular, check out the Members Lounge webpage where all members only events are listed. If you feel keen to attend these activities, please join us.

Members, please book via Eventbrite whether attending in person or online.
