Event description
Bestselling non-fiction writer Peter FitzSimons will discuss his new book James Cook, mariner, navigator and cartographer extraordinaire.

About this Event

With masterful storytelling talent, Peter FitzSimons brings James Cook to life. Focusing on his most iconic expedition, the voyage of the Endeavour, where Cook first set foot on Australian and New Zealand soil, FitzSimons contrasts Cook against another figure who looms large in Australasian history: Joseph Banks, the aristocratic botanist.

Listen as the author shares insights into the man that James Cook was as well as his extraordinary achievements.

Books will be available for a purchase.
