Balmain, NSW 2041 Australia
Tuesday, July 5, 2022
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Paul Daley in conversation with Mike Bowers

‘Poignant and powerful; the best book I’ve read this year.’ – Chris Hammer

‘An unflinching examination of the truths white Australia refuses to acknowledge.’ – Jock Serong

‘This is a story-a great story-with all the tragedy and lies that is colonial Australia. Our circle of tragedy.’ – Thomas Mayor

From award-winning journalist Paul Daley comes a gripping multi-generational saga about Australian frontier violence and cultural theft that will capture the national imagination.

Join him on Tuesday 5 July in conversation with Mike Bowers, Guardian Australia‘s photographer-at-large and host of Talking Pictures on Insiders.

Attendees are asked to arrive at 6.30pm or earlier for a 7pm start upstairs at The Royal Oak Balmain. 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.

Jesustown will be available for purchase at the venue through Roaring Stories, with book signings from Daley 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.
