Damage Control

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 
15 May 2022
Author / Presenters: 
Dianne Dempsey, Mark Willacy, host Sian Gard

Patriotism needs loyalty to a cause and to authority. The stories of those who fought in conflicts are full of self-sacrifice and pride, but there are also the stories of shame and damage caused by the awful and intolerable pressures. Can we, should we, ask about what happens in the conflict zone? Sian Gard hosts Dianne Dempsey and Mark Willacy for a discussion about the personal cost of fighting a war.

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