In conversation: David Hill and Phil Brown discuss The Great Race

 

This event gives meaning to the phrase "putting Australia on the map".

David Hill's latest book chronicles the race between Frenchman Nicolas
Baudin and Englishman Matthew Flinders to chart the map of Australia.
Written from diaries and other first-hand accounts, it is the thrilling
story of men whose drawings recorded countless previously unknown
species and turned mythical creatures into real ones, and whose skill
and determination enabled Terra Australis Incognita to become
Australia.During his remarkable career, David Hill has been chairman
then managing director of the ABC, chairman of the Australian Football
Association, chief executive and director of the State Rail Authority
NSW, chairman of Sydney Water Corporation and chairman of CREATE, a
national organisation responsible for representing the interests of
young people and children in institutional care. He is the author of
bestsellers The Forgotten Children, The Gold Rush and 1788. He lives in
Sydney.

 

Phil Brown is a journalist and author who writes regularly on arts and
entertainment for Brisbane News.  His memoirs, Travels with My Angst and
most recently Any Guru Will Do, are both published by University of
Queensland Press.

Refreshments will be provided and David will be signing copies of his
book following the event.
