This book was a welcome addition to my little reference library for research on colonial Australian history. Grace Karskens is a distinguished Australian historian and author. She has the ability to ‘write history’ in a sympathetic and engaging way, bringing to life events, people and places from our past. I’m thrilled to be attending an author talk with Grace at Hawkesbury Regional Museum, Windsor, on 27th October. She will be talking about People of the River, her forthcoming book about early contacts between indigenous people and settlers along the Hawkesbury -Nepean rivers. I can’t wait to read this book and look forward to hearing Grace speak about it.
Here’s the link to the event: I’d love to see you there.
