Books can change our minds, change our hearts and sometimes our lives. They can also regenerate us, and many of us are in need of regeneration in our current historical moment.

We are meeting every two weeks to discuss a range of fiction and non-fiction books and readings with themes on climate change, colonisation and decolonisation, civil disobedience and nonviolence, and our natural world.

Anyone is welcome to join any of our discussions. Bring your ideas, thoughts and passion and also your listening ears ready to hear others’ perspectives.

Join Rebel Readers on 11 January to discuss Bruce Pascoe's Dark Emu, which reexamines colonial accounts of Aboriginal people in Australia, citing many examples of and references to farming, engineering and large villages, challenging the view that these people were hunter-gatherers.
