Dear reader,

We are extremely delighted to invite you to an evening of good wine and conversation with renowned author, journalist and historian Paul Ham on November 16th at 6.30pm at Berkelouw Books Paddington (19 Oxford Street, Paddington, 2021). Paul will be in conversation about The New Jerusalem, his new book on the story of one of the first violent revolts of the Reformation, which, together with the Peasants’ War of 1524-25, helped to ignite 110 years of religious conflict that ended with the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648.

Paul Ham is the author of Hiroshima Nagasaki (2011), Vietnam: The Australian War (2007) and Kokoda (2004). Vietnam won the New South Wales Premier’s Prize for Australian History and was shortlisted for the Prime Minister’s Prize for Non-Fiction (2008). Kokoda was shortlisted for the Walkley Award for Non-Fiction and the New South Wales Premier’s Prize for Non-Fiction.

Sandakan: The Untold Story of the Sandakan Death Marches, was published in 2012 and was shortlisted for the 2013 Prime Minister’s Literary Award for History. His last book was Young Hitler: The Making of the Fuhrer.

A former Sunday Times correspondent, with a Master’s degree in Economic History from the London School of Economics, Paul now devotes most of his time to writing history. He lives in Paris and Sydney with his family.
