Fact/Fiction Conversation: Claire G. Coleman & Clare Wright

  • Eltham Library Panther Place Eltham, VIC 3095 Australia (map)

These two authors take Australia’s past and actual lived experiences to create two different responses. Award-winning and bestselling author Claire G. Coleman created Terra Nullius (and the soon‐to‐be‐ released The Old Lie) to explore colonisation and displacement and re‐examine the impact of Australia’s past through a dystopic‐ fictional lens.

In writing the democracy‐trilogy, award-winning author and historian Clare Wright brings the overlooked struggles of women throughout Australia’s history and gives their stories an urgency for today’s political climate by creating The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka and You Daughters of Freedom.

What compels these authors to write about these experiences and how do they approach these topics?
