Event description
Meet Peter Grose @ Five Dock Library

About this Event

A band of convicts, a scoundrel by the name of Jimmy Porter, a stolen brig and a daring plan to escape.. Peter's story does not begin or end there. From the strong connection between the slave trade and convict 'transportation' to the possible illegality of the whole convict system, Ten Rogues shines a light into some dark and previously well-hidden corners of colonial history.

Peter Grose began his working life as a journalist for the Sydney Daily Mirror before becoming the first London Correspondent of the Australian. He became a literary agent setting up 'Curtis Brown' the first literary agency in Australia and now the biggest.

In his retirement he returned to his first love of writing. He is the author of three best-selling history books: A Rude Awakening (2007), A Good Place to Hide (2015), and An Awkward Truth (2017).
