Writers @ Stanton: Chris Hammer
Venue: Stanton Library
Set in a fictional Riverina town at the height of a devastating drought, Scrublands is one of the most powerful, compelling and original crime novels to be written in Australia.
Chris Hammer was a journalist for more than 30 years, dividing his time between covering Australian federal politics and international affairs. For many years he was a roving foreign correspondent for SBS TV’s flagship current affairs programme Dateline. In Canberra, his roles included chief political correspondent for The Bulletin, current affairs correspondent for SBS TV, and a senior political journalist for The Age. His first book The River (non-fiction), published in 2010, to critical acclaim, was the recipient of the ACT Book of the Year Award as well as being shortlisted for the Walkley Book Award and the Manning Clark House National Cultural Award.
