Join us for a book club webinar with award-winning journalist and author Laura Tingle, moderated by My Bookshop’s Corrie Perkin.

Tingle’s November 2020 Quarterly Essay, The High Road: What Australia Can Learn from New Zealand, considers everything from the two countries’ current leadership to the ways each has dealt with their colonial legacies.
