Friends are invited to an exciting new Meet the Author event with award-winning author, Alex Miller.
Alex will be talking about his acclaimed new book, Max, shortlisted for the 2021 National Biography Prize.
“As readers of Alex Miller, we feel ourselves to be in the presence of a great heart and a penetrating sensibility, and in the thrall of one of our nation’s most beloved writers.”
- Tom Griffiths, Emeritus Professor of History, ANU
An astonishing, moving tribute to Alex's friend, Max Blatt, that is at once a meditation on memory itself, on friendship and a reminder to the reader that history belongs to humanity.
