How will 2020 shift our sense of our history, our environment and ourselves? And how might it change our ideas about the future?
A new anthology, Fire Flood Plague, sees leading Australian writers trying to make sense of the chaos of 2020; a year that began with raging bushfires, then descended into Covid-19 confusion.
In these thoughtful essays, supported by the Copyright Agency and first published in the Guardian, our best thinkers grapple with the many strange, disturbing and uplifting moments of 2020; scenes of Zoom chats with old friends, of Black Lives Matter protests, of the toilet-paper wars, of January's smoke-filled cities and February’s torrential east-coast rains.
At this very special online event, introduced by Copyright Agency CEO Adam Suckling and hosted by Sophie Cunningham, we'll hear from Fire Flood Plague writers – environmentalists, historians, scientists and novelists – as they read from their work.
Our online bookseller for this event will be Readings.
