Brisbane History

Building Brisbane's History

Last year I spent many happy hours collaborating with historian, Helen Gregory on a new book called Building Brisbane’s History – Structures, sculptures, stories and secrets. The book should be arriving in book shops across the city as I write. Hopefully a few copies will arrive for me too!

We’ll be doing an author talk at Riverbend Books on Tuesday 1 March 2011. Helen is a very entertaining speaker and is a walking encyclopaedia of Brisbane history. I notice she’s mentioned in Matthew Condon’s book Brisbane (on page 26) which is my current bedtime reading.
