  • Claire G. Coleman in conversation with Torres Strait Islander journalist and broadcaster, Rhianna Patrick, about Lies, Damned Lies

    Claire G. Coleman will be in conversation with Torres Strait Islander journalist and broadcaster, Rhianna Patrick, about Claire's latest book supported by the NSW Public Libraries Association.

    In her non-fiction debut, Lies, Damned Lies, Coleman wields the truths unseen in Australia’s history to highlight the wrongs that underpin the very foundations of this nation.

    For too long the conversation around decolonisation in Australia has sat within the political yet it deeply affects the individual. Lies, Damned Lies changes this - it is a rallying cry that thrums with fury - and one that demands a response.
