Based on the Stella Prize-winning book, The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka is an upcoming drama series exploring the stories of bold women adventurers who flocked to the Australian goldfields in the 1850s, and their little-acknowledged role in the Eureka Stockade. Recently, award-winning Hollywood writer Anne Kenney, executive producer and scriptwriter for the fan-favourite Outlander has been secured to write the pilot script. The series is being produced by Ruby Entertainment, creators of the Logie winning The Secret River.

Join historian Dr Clare Wright and screenwriter Anne Kenney in conversation with writer and critic Danielle Binks as they discuss all things Outlander and Forgotten Rebels, including their process for adapting non-fiction narratives for television, the importance of the female gaze, constructing powerful female historical representations and navigating an international co-production.

Krissy Kneen in Books and Ideas at Montalto (VIC)
Krissy Kneen

Krissy Kneen is a writer of lavish imagination.

Over seven books – including five novels, one volume of poetry and a memoir – she's invented bizarre fictional technologies, conjured extravagant sexual escapades, and speculated about consciousness-fusing with jellyfish. Female sexual adventure is front and centre in much of Kneen's work, but her writing twists and traverses several genres including literary fiction, erotica and sci-fi.

Her 2017 book, An Uncertain Grace, explored ideas of posthumanism, morality and identity. It was shortlisted for the 2018 Stella Prize. Kneen’s new book, Wintering, is a gothic thriller set in the Tasmanian wilderness.

At Montalto, Kneen will discuss her latest work with Elizabeth McCarthy.
