Mark Tedeschi QC, Murder at Myall Creek: Author Talk

An author talk presented by Mark Tedeschi, QC. The most sensational trial of mass murder in Australia’s legal history occurred in 1838 when eleven convicts and former convicts were put on trial for the murder of 28 Aboriginal men, women and children at Myall Creek. Whilst Macquarie is remembered for his building projects and expanding the boundaries of the colony, John Hubert Plunkett (prosecutor and Attorney General of New South Wales) remains virtually unknown. Yet in his 24 years as Solicitor General and Attorney General of New South Wales, Mark Tedeschi argues that Plunkett did more to shape the future of modern-day Australian political, legal and educational institutions than anyone else in his day. Time: 2pm – 3.30pm. Book and pay at any Library Branch.
