Description

Author talk: Macquarie

With Grantlee Kieza

Lachlan Macquarie is credited with shaping Australia’s destiny, transforming the harsh, penal colony into an agricultural powerhouse and ultimately a functioning society. Ambition brought him into conflict with the continent’ original landowners. A military operation intended to create terror among local Aboriginal people saw men, women and children brutally killed. So, did Macquarie sow the seeds of a great nation, or was he a tyrant who destroyed Aboriginal resistance? Grantlee will discuss his new biography, Macquarie.
