Join History SA and Imprints Booksellers for a special Talking History event

Imprints Booksellers - Friday, October 21, 2016

'Out of the Ivory Tower: ways of telling history' with Nick Brodie and Kiera Lindsey

Historians Dr Nick Brodie and Dr Kiera Lindsey have found popular success with their recent books on forgotten or little-known happenings from Australia's past. Brodie’s latest book, 1787: The Lost Chapters of Australia's Beginnings, challenges our national understanding of the ‘discovery’ of the continent, while Lindsey's compelling tale, The Convict’s Daughter: The Scandal that Shocked a Colony, recounts a meticulously researched story from the author’s own family. Join us, as these two rising stars of Australian history share their secrets in a special Talking History event:

Monday 24 October 5.30 for 6pm-7.30pm
Drill Hall, Torrens Parade Ground
Onsite parking (entrance off Victoria Drive)
Admission is FREE but registrations required

The Adelaide Festival of Ideas | 21-23 October, 2016

Imprints Booksellers - Monday, October 17, 2016

The Adelaide Festival of Ideas returns this weekend with around 70 thinkers tackling topics ranging from the precarious future of the world's citrus industry to contemporary challenges facing democracy and human rights. The vast majority of sessions are free though a few highlights are worth shelling out the modest ticket price. In particular, we recommend Erin Brockovich in conversation with Phillip Adams and a special session celebrating poetry, music and story telling on the theme of Home. You can find details of speakers, events and sessions online or collect your old fashioned paper-and-ink program in store. This year, as in years past, Imprints Booksellers are pleased to partner with the festival as its official bookseller. You'll find us hosting a pop-up bookshop in the AFoI marquee, located near Elder and Bonython Halls. We hope to see you there!
