Event description

Description

In 1967, Joan Lindsay published a novel that cast a long shadow over the Australian psyche. Picnic at Hanging Rock relates the story of three schoolgirls and a teacher who go missing in the bush in 1900. For many, this fictional tale of white loss has eclipsed the real Indigenous history of the site. Join author Dr Catherine Padmore (La Trobe University) to explore material relating to Lindsay’s life and this much-discussed text.
