Under The Greenwood Tree – Book Launch
4 June 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Author’s Journey Of Discovery Sheds New Light On Queensland’s History
Author Karen Rosser, a fourth-generation member of one of Tamborine Mountain’s pioneering families, has brought history to life through the story of The Mountain – known by its traditional custodians the Wangerriburra as Wangalpong – from its violent birth from the Tweed Volcano millions of years ago to the birth of Queensland in 1859.
The book, in which The Mountain is personified as a central character that loomed large in the lives of the Wangerriburra people, will be launched by Under the Greenwood Tree bookshop on Sunday 4 June at the Zamia Theatre, Tamborine Mountain.
There, Karen will share the story of her research that sheds new light on Queensland’s early history and some of its key figures, including explorer and Commandant, Captain Patrick Logan.
The book launch, including the author’s talk and light refreshments, will be held at the Zamia Theatre, Main Street, Tamborine Mountain, on Sunday 4 June at 2.30pm.
For further information, or to arrange an interview with the author, phone Under the Greenwood Tree on 0424 586 000 or Karen Rosser 0419 792 682.
