Ian’s talk about his newly released historical novel That Untravelled World was fantastic. 20 keen historians and writers gathered over wine and cheese to hear about Ian’s approach to writing this novel and to learn some tricks of the trade. Ian also read an excerpt from the novel that focused on Perth Zoo and South Perth in the 1910’s.

Fore more information and to purchase the novel, visit UWA Publishing’s website. Copies will be available for loan through South Perth and Manning Library in the near future.
