Book Launch: Sludge

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 9 August 2019
Author / Presenters: John Brumby, Peter Davies, Susan Lawrence

Sludge is the fascinating story of the forgotten filth that plagued nineteenth-century Victoria. It exposes the dirty big secret of Victoria’s mining history – the way it transformed the state’s water and land; and also how the battle against sludge helped to lay the ground for the modern environmental movement. La Trobe University Chancellor John Brumby launches this fascinating book that will make us all see our landscape in a totally new light.

Free, all welcome
