Event description

Description

Join Richard Glover to hear about his new book The Land Before Avocado - a funny and frank look at the way Australia used to be - and just how far we have come.

It's the Australia of his childhood. The Australia of the late 60's and early '70s....a place of funny clothing and food that was appalling, but amusingly so. It is also the land of staggeringly awful attitudes - often enshrined in law - towards anybody who didn't fit in.

The Land Before Avocado will make you laugh and cry, be angry and inspired. And leave you wondering how bizarre things were, not so long ago.

Free event - All welcome - Light refreshments

Bookings open Tuesday 2 October
