Dr Liz Tynan’s powerful new book, Atomic Thunder, earned her the 2017 Prime Minister’s Literary Award for Australian history. ‘Compulsive reading?’ wrote Phillip Adams, ‘Make that compulsory.  This is a brilliant book.’  In her compelling talk, guests will hear of the complex web that connected government secrecy, human folly, cultural bigotry, international scandal, and scientific arrogance in the nuclear age. 

Join us for an evening in which we explore truth, lies and secret histories from Australia’s past.

Dr Tynan is a historian at James Cook University and a former scientific journalist for the ABC and New Scientist.
