The B List Bookclub is on each month at the State Library of New South Wales.
November will be a special double-header on Thursday 21 November. The two are: Professor Larissa Behrendt’s book Finding Eliza: colonial power and storytelling and Michelle Scott Tucker’s book Elizabeth Macarthur: a life at the edge of the world https://www.sl.nsw.gov.au/events/b-list-bri-lee-michelle-scott-tucker-larissa-behrendt
The final bookclub for 2019 will be on Thursday 5 December.
“Come and join us at the Library for The B List, an exciting, new style of book club hosted by the award-winning author and avid reader, Bri Lee. Each month Bri will be in conversation with a variety of authors previously shortlisted for one of the Library’s prestigious literary awards. After the talk, you will be invited into the our historic Friends Room to continue the conversation with your fellow readers! Join authors of fiction and non-fiction, humour, history, and biography - each month Bri will bring you something new and the calibre is guaranteed to be high.”
