Event Details

In 'Banjo', Grantlee Kieza's landmark biography, we discover the real Andrew Barton 'Banjo' Paterson. Australia's most celebrated poet and storyteller helped define our national traits of loyalty, mateship and laconic humour, but he did and was so much more. A soldier in the Boer War and WWI, the balladeer bushman was also a solicitor, newspaper editor, columnist, war and foreign correspondent and ABC broadcaster.

Close friends with many luminaries of his time, including Rudyard Kipling, Winston Churchill, Field Marshal Haig, Breaker Morant and Henry Lawson, the tennis ace, notorious ladies man, brilliant jockey and celebrated polo player was eye witness to many of the great moments in Australian 20th century history.

Extensively researched and written with Kieza's trademark verve, 'Banjo' is a rich and captivating portrait of our most celebrated poet and a truly great Australian.

 Award-winning journalist Grantlee Kieza has held senior editorial positions at The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Telegraph and The Courier-Mail. He is a Walkley Award finalist and the author of twelve acclaimed books, including the recent bestsellers Mrs Kelly, Monash, Sons of the Southern Cross and Bert Hinkler
