Books For Our Time – Island 130:Tasmania Now Fullers Bookshop and the Inglis Clark Centre for Civil Society at the University of Tasmania present a series of conversations - prompted by books which shape the big debates of our time.

Natasha Cica and Rachel Edwards will lead this discussion. Natasha is the director of the Inglis Clark Centre and Rachel is the events manager at Fullers Bookshop and the fiction editor of Island. Each event will focus on one selected book as a starting point for conversation.
All are welcome to attend and participation is free though we do ask that you purchase the book from Fullers.
Numbers in each conversation will be strictly limited and RSVP is essential: rsvp@fullersbookshop.com.au

Next Conversation: Thursday, November 22, 6pm. Tasmania is the ‘hottest’ state in the country right now – and its personal, political and cultural machinations are coming under the spotlight as never before. Island magazine is one of Australia’s longest running and most respected literary magazines and in Issue 130:Tasmania Now, its editor Dale Campisi, has chosen to tackle these issues head on. Tasmania Now includes essays by Rebecca Fitzgibbon, Ralph Crane and Natasha Cica and fiction by both established and emerging Tasmanian authors. This opens a topical and wide-ranging discussion about what it means to be Tasmanian.
