In Search of Alan Moorehead
Thornton McCamish with Stuart Kells at Woodend Community Centre
Monday 12th June, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
A world-famous Australian writer, an inspiration to Robert Hughes and Clive James, a legendary war correspondent who also wrote bestselling histories of exploration and conservation … and yet forgotten? In his book Our Man Elsewhere: In Search of Alan Moorehead journalist and writer Thornton McCamish delves into the past to reclaim a remarkable figure.
Moorehead’s story, with its countless adventures, jet-set glamour and its tragic arc is a beguiling one. He talks with author and bookman Stuart Kells.
Shortlisted for the Douglas Stewart non-fiction award in the NSW Premier’s Literary awards.
