The saga of Australia continues with ... GIRT NATION

Speaker: David Hunt

David Hunt tramples the tall poppies of the past in charting Australia's transformation from aspiration to nation -an epic tale of charlatans and costermongers, of bush bards and bushier beards, of workers and women who weren't going to take it anymore.

David Hunt likes writing his own biographical notes. He is the author of the bestselling Girt and True Girt, as well as two books for children. David is also a television presenter and podcaster.

Venue: Henry Carmichael Theatre,

Sydney Mechanics School of ARts, 280 Pitt Street, Sydney

Admission: Members $5 Visitors $10
