Broadcaster and former presenter of Radio National’s The Book Show, Ramona Koval, will present the 2012 Redmond Barry Lecture about her new novel, By the book – a reader’s guide to life.
After a long career of reading and talking with some of the most important writers of our times, Ramona is writing her own book. In this lecture during the National Year of Reading, she will take the audience on a tour of her beloved private collection of favourite books.
The annual Redmond Barry Lecture honours the life and work of Sir Redmond Barry (1813–80), founder of the State Library and a key figure in the development of Australia’s cultural and intellectual life.
