We are always seeing books telling ‘previously untold’ stories about our wars. This one deserves the description more than most: Peter Monteath’s Captured Lives: Australia’s Wartime Internment Camps, from NLA Publishing.
The author will be giving a lecture (NLA fourth floor conference room), to be followed by the launch by Professor Joan Beaumont, with refreshments in the foyer. Details are here. Free but please make a booking.
