Shell description

It is 1965 and Australia is caught in a moment of tectonic change. A new cathedral to art and beauty rises on Bennelong Point as the Government conscripts young men to its controversial war. Through an independent young journalist and a brilliant Swedish glass artist, Kristina Olsson masterfully captures the turbulence of a time in which Australia sought to determine its identity and values. A stunning book of lyricism and ideas.

Chair: Cath Kenneally
