The Dissenter

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 
14 May 2022
Author / Presenters: 
Gideon Haigh, host Robert Stephenson

Legacy can be cruel. A politician who was dashing, inspired, outspoken, a popular historian and a champion of modern art is now remembered as hapless and divisive. The story of Doc Evatt, as told by Gideon Haigh, is remarkable and timely. He talks to Robert Stephenson about why he wrote his account of this brilliant politician and how dissent has shaped Australia.

Tickets $20 full / $16 concession or multi-buy.
