Cass Moriarty is in-conversation with multi-award winning author Graeme Simsion discussing The Rosie Result - the final instalment in the much-loved and internationally bestselling Rosie trilogy.
Join 2014 Nib and Stella Award winner Clare Wright in conversation with Suzanne Leal to discuss this important work, You Daughters of Freedom: The Australians who won the vote and inspired the world.
This book brings to life a time when Australian democracy was the envy of the world—and the standard bearer for progress in a shining new century. For the ten years from 1902, when Australia’s feminist activists won the vote for white women, the world looked to this trailblazing young democracy for inspiration.
Wright’s epic new history tells the story of that victory—and of Australia’s role in the subsequent international struggle through the eyes of five remarkable players.

Her earlier book, The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka, won the 2014 Stella Prize and the 2014 NIB Award for Literature and was shortlisted for many other awards.

When first published, the quirky story of Don, a middle-aged autistic man’s search for love, had a profound impact on people worldwide, and generated a positive discussion of difference and acceptance in society.
The Rosie Result sees Don and Rosie return, managing the twists and turns of everyday life, but this time the problem to solve is how to help their eleven-year-old son, Hudson, make his way in the world. It’ll have you cheering with joy!
Graeme will be signing books after the event, with Riverbend Books selling copies.
For the ten years from 1902, when Australia’s suffrage campaigners won the vote for white women, the world looked to this trailblazing young democracy for inspiration.
Clare Wright’s epic new history tells the story of that victory—and of Australia’s role in the subsequent international struggle—through the eyes of five remarkable players: the redoubtable Vida Goldstein, the flamboyant Nellie Martel, indomitable Dora Montefiore, daring Muriel Matters, and artist Dora Meeson Coates, who painted the controversial Australian banner carried in the British suffragettes’ monster marches of 1908 and 1911.
Clare Wright’s Stella Prize-winning The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka retold one of Australia’s foundation stories from a fresh new perspective. With You Daughters of Freedom she brings to life a time when Australian democracy was the envy of the world—and the standard bearer for progress in a shining new century.
At the Sydney Institute, Clare Wright will be delivering for the first time her talk, Crafting the Nation: The Story of a Banner, a Bicentennial and a Berth in the Big House of Australian Democracy.
