Julian Burnside & author James Dryburgh in conversation

You are warmly invited to a conversation with Julian Burnside QC and author of The Balfour Correspondent, James Dryburgh.  

The Balfour Correspondent is a compelling response to a young girl's letters written to Tasmanian Newspaper, over 100 years ago.

During 1912, fourteen-year-old Sylvia McArthur writes to a weekly Tasmanian newspaper from Tasmania's wilds. Her letters from the doomed bush town of Balfour, in the lands we now think of as the Tarkine, have been forgotten for a century. James Dryburgh answers her letters, creating a strangely powerful dialogue across time and space and giving us a powerful sense of the forces that still do battle to shape our existence in this country, and on this earth.
