7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Don Watson in conversation with Anna Funder

From the bestselling author of The Bush, The Passion of Private White tells the true story of a fifty-year relationship between a Vietnam veteran and an isolated clan in north-east Arnhem Land. By one of Australia’s most masterful and widely respected storytellers, Don Watson, it provides a unique window into Australia’s deep past and precarious present.

On Wednesday 23 November at The Royal Oak, join Watson in conversation with prize-winning international bestselling author Anna Funder (Stasiland, All That I Am).

Attendees are asked to arrive at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Seating is unallocated – another reason to arrive early to secure an optimal spot. Why not make a full evening of it, too, by booking a meal at the Royal Oak before or after the event? One of Balmain’s oldest and best-known pubs, it serves a delicious range of food and beverages.

The Passion of Private White will be available for purchase at the venue through Roaring Stories, with book signings from Watson following the discussion.

If you miss out on a ticket, you can still watch the event as it is livestreamed from the Roaring Stories Facebook page (accessible on the Home page and from the Live tab). A recording will also be available to view later as an upload on the Roaring Stories YouTube channel.
