Event description

Description

John Macarthur is widely credited as the father of the Australian wool industry but it was practical Elizabeth who supervised their agricultural empire and maintained a steady social presence in the colony, all the while raising nine children and managing her husband’s increasing bouts of mania and depression. Elizabeth Macarthur: A Life at the Edge of the World is a powerful addition to the growing canon of female-focused Australian historical writing.

Books will be available for sale on the night.
