Geraldine Brooks Delivers 2011 Boyer Lectures: “The Idea of Home”
Every year, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation airs a series of talks by a prominent Australian. Geraldine’s first lecture explores our duty to our only home, this planet. The second and third examine how Brooks’s ideas were shaped by the progressive ethos of her Australian childhood and her years abroad as a foreign correspondent. In the final lecture, she reflects on her ultimate home in literature as a writer of historical fiction.
