Description

Liz Tynans powerful new book, Atomic Thunder, earned her the 2017 Prime Ministers Literary Award for Australian history. Compulsive reading?, wrote Phillip Adams, Make that compulsory. This is a brilliant book.

The City of Fremantle and The University of Notre Dame Australia are delighted to welcome Liz Tynan as this years festival keynote speaker.

In her compelling talk, guests will hear of the complex web that connected government secrecy, human folly, cultural bigotry, international scandal, and scientific arrogance in the nuclear age. Join us for an evening in which we explore truth, lies and secret histories from Australias past.

Dr Liz Tynan is a historian at James Cook University and a former science journalist for the ABC and New Scientist.

The National Hotel's pop-up bar will be selling refreshments before and after the event. For more information on this and other Festival events at Notre Dame, visit us at www.nd.edu.au/heritagefestival.
