Meredith Burgmann and Nadia Wheatley will be in conversation with Melinda McNaughton from Wollondilly Library discussing their new book 'Radicals: Remembering the Sixties' with the support of NSW Public Libraries Association
"The Sixties – an era of protest, free love, civil disobedience, duffel coats, flower power, giant afros and desert boots, all recorded on grainy black and white film footage – marked a turning point for change. Radicals found their voices and used them.
While the initial trigger for protest was opposition to the Vietnam War, this anger quickly escalated to include Aboriginal Land Rights, Women’s Liberation, Gay Liberation, Apartheid, Student Power and ‘workers’ control’.
In Radicals some of the people doing the changing – including David Marr, Margret RoadKnight, Gary Foley, Jozefa Sobski and Geoffrey Robertson – reflect on how the decade changed them and Australian society forever.
Bookings are essential and information about the webinar will be emailed to you before the date.
Copies of the book are available to borrow from Stanton Library or purchase from The Constant Reader Bookshop.
