Book Launch: The Settlement

Readings Carlton — Woiworung Country, 309 Lygon St, Carlton, Victoria, 3053

Join us for the release of The Settlement; a career-defining masterpiece by internationally award-winning Australian storyteller Jock Serong.

On the windswept point of an island at the edge of Van Diemen’s Land, the Commandant huddles with a small force of white men and women. He has gathered together, under varying degrees of coercion and duress, the last of the Tasmanians, or so he believes. His purpose is to save them—from a number of things, but most pressingly from the murderous intent of the pastoral settlers on their country.

Elizabeth McCarthy will be in conversation with Serong on the evening.
