Lonely Coat is proud to present a free author event featuring renowned Australian ceramicist and curator, Glenn Barkley.

Join us for a community discussion on The Voice to Parliament Handbook

Make history and help us ensure that Australia has an Indigenous Voice to Parliament

Lonely Coat Books & Art is collaborating with Yes23 Sutherland Shire to host free discussion sessions focused on Thomas Mayo & Kerry O’Brien’s The Voice to Parliament Handbook, which is being published on May 17. The sessions (25 May & 4 June) aim to provide a forum for questions and ideas around how supporters in our community can help to make the Voice to Parliament a reality, and how they can to talk to others about it. Availability is limited, so get in fast!

PLEASE NOTE, attendees will need to have read the Handbook before they attend the Book Club Session. Pre-order the Handbook from Lonely Coat for pick up on/after May 18. Attendees should also consider purchasing a copy of Thomas Mayo’s earlier book, which will provide useful background information.
