From Steele Rudd to John Birmingham, Queensland has a rich and varied literary history that is often overshadowed by that of the southern states. How much do you know about your literary heritage? 

Discover more by joining our three speakers, Professor Patrick Buckridge (Griffith University), Dr Jessica Gildersleeve (Griffith University and University of Southern Queensland) and Dr Maggie Nolan (Australian Catholic University), as they discuss diverse aspects of Queensland’s literary history.

This is an Out of the Port free lunchtime talk, presented by State Library’s John Oxley Library and the Department of Environmental and Resource Management.
