Join Susannah Fullerton as she presents his lecture ETHEL TURNER AND 'SEVEN LITTLE AUSTRALIANS’ via ZOOM. Please ensure you have downloaded and signed up to Zoom before the lecture begins https://zoom.us/
In an era when fiction was supposed to be about ‘good’ children, Ethel Turner dared to make her seven Aussie children naughty, getting into constant scrapes and sometimes getting away with them.
In 1994 this was the only book by an Australian author to have been continuously in print for 100 years. Join Susannah to discover why it is such a beloved classic.
