Join the Cretan Association of Queensland for the launch of

Diggers and Greeks: The Australian Campaigns in Greece and Crete

The Greek Club, 29 - 31 Edmonstone St, South Brisbane

Thursday 21st October 2010 5.00pm – 6.30pm

Launched by The Honourable Anna Bligh MP, Premier of Queensland and Minister for the Arts with guest speaker Professor Joy Damousi - University of Melbourne.

“Maria Hill’s book Diggers and Greeks offers a fascinating insight into a little-known chapter of our involvement in the theatre of war. The book also adds to our understanding of the strong bonds between the Greek and Australian people - a bond that continues to enrich our lives and communities today. Diggers and Greeks is already receiving recognition and was shortlisted for the 2010 Queensland Premier’s Literary Awards. The judges praised the book for revealing the shortcomings of the official histories of this campaign.” - Hon. Anna Bligh MP, Queensland Premier


RSVP: Monday 29th March 2010 (before Easter long weekend)
