Writers @ Stanton: Mark McKenna
Venue: Stanton Library
Australia is on the brink of momentous change, but only if its citizens and politicians can come to new terms with the past. Indigenous recognition and a new push for a republic await action.
In the inspiring Quarterly Essay ‘Moment of truth: history and Australia’s future’, Mark McKenna considers the frontier, the Anzac legacy and deep time. He drags some fascinating new scholarship into the light, and pushes the debate about history beyond the familiar polarities.
The author talk is followed by question time and the opportunity for book signing.
There is seating for 100 people and standing room is available.
Seating is on a first come, first served basis.
If you have specific accessibility or seating requirements, please contact the library prior to the event.
