Pageturners read biographies at the November meeting. Here is a sample:
Bearing Witness – The remarkable life of Charles Bean, Australia’s greatest war correspondent by Peter Rees. A full biography of the man known as CEW Bean – war correspondent and official historian of World War I – that for the first time captures and portrays the essence of the man, his work, his influence on Australian history, and how Australians have seen themselves in the century since the Great War.
Pageturners: “It is the full story of his life not just the war years. He was an amazing person, it’s a fantastic read.”
