Mad Dogs and Thunderbolts - Ben Pobjie

Description
Ben Pobjie is known for his satirical writing in the Sydney Morning Herald, Crikey and the ABC – and for his uproariously honest books appraising Australia’s history. In Mad Dogs and Thunderbolts Ben turns his satirical eye to bushrangers to set the record straight. He celebrates the derring-do and revolutionary passion of the wild colonial boys and girls who raided our towns and stole our hearts, all while wearing sensible head-gear. Ben Pobjie studied history at the University of Western Sydney before his lust for glamour led him to comedy writing. He is known for his TV columns in The Age and Sydney Morning Herald, and political satire for New Matilda, Crikey and the ABC, among others. A History Illuminated 2019 session. Presented by Lake Mac Libraries in partnership with Hunter Writers Centre. Book sales provided by Dymocks, Charlestown.
