The HCV Book + Author evenings are back! Please join us for the first Book + Author for this year: Janet McCalman in conversation with Graeme Davison about her recent book, Vandemonians: the Repressed History of Colonial Victoria.
A multi-award winning social historian whose books include Struggletown, Journeyings and Sex and Suffering, Janet focuses, in her latest book, on the Van Diemen’s Land convicts who made their way to Victoria when possible. What kind of colonisers were these former convicts, more than 40,000 of whom migrated to the colony of Victoria? Join us for a Book + Author evening in which the repressed tales and life stories of these men, women and children, the Vandemonians, are brought to life.
