Where: LibraryMuseum, Corner of Kiewa and Swift Streets, Albury
Price: FREE, Bookings required
Don’t miss Meredith Lake’s free author talk at the LibraryMuseum, held in conjunction with the State Library of NSW and Copyright Australia Cultural Fund.
The Bible in Australia explores how in the hands of zealots, immigrants, suffragists, evangelists, unionists, writers, artists and Indigenous Australians, the Bible has played a contested but defining role in this country. In this surprising and revelatory history of the Bible in Australia, Meredith Lake gets under the skin of a text that’s been read, wrestled with, preached and tattooed, and believed to be everything from a resented imposition to the very Word of God.
Pop-up bar selling wine and beer. Complimentary soft drinks and snacks.
