‘Project RAINFALL: the secret history of Pine Gap’
Pine Gap is a top secret American spy base on Australian soil, but how much do we really know about it?
At the height of the Cold War the chief of one of Australia's spy agencies joined three CIA men at a remote site in Central Australia to toast the success of a top secret project known in US intelligence circles as RAINFALL.
Drawing on declassified documents in Australian and US archives, Tom Gilling's explosive new book tells, for the first time, the uncensored story of Australia's most secret place.
Tom Gilling is an acclaimed novelist and non-fiction author.
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.
