Matt Murphy – Online Author Talk

Matt Murphy will be in conversation discussing his newest book ‘Rum – A Distilled History of Colonial Australia’ with the support of NSW Public Libraries Association.

Matt, author, part time historian and teacher, will take us through his account of the formation of Australia through the distorted view of a rum bottle. He will cover questions like Would the Eureka Stockade have been different if the rebels weren’t pissed? And how were prisoners to get drunk if Macquarie closed the only pub in the goal?..
