Virtual author talk: Meredith Burgmann and Nadia Wheatley

Virtual author talk: Meredith Burgmann and Nadia Wheatley


In collaboration with NSW Public Libraries, City of Canada Bay Libraries present Meredith Burgmann and Nadia Wheatley in conversation with Melinda McNaughton from Wollondilly Library. The panel will be discussing Radicals, remembering the Sixties. The sixties — an era of protest, free love, civil disobedience, duffel coats, flower power, giant afros and desert boots, all recorded on grainy black and white film footage — marked a turning point for change. Radicals found their voices and used them. While the initial trigger for protest was the opposition to the Vietnam War, this anger quickly escalated to include Aboriginal lands rights, women's liberation, gay liberation, Apartheid, student power and workers' control.

In Radicals some of the people doing the changing — including David Marr, Margret RoadKnight, Gary Foley, Jozefa Sobski and Geoffrey Robertson — reflect on how the decade changed them and changed Australian society forever.
