Cultivate your curiosity with State Library of Queensland’s new Talking Ideas program.

Be part of extraordinary discussions featuring exceptional international and national writers and thinkers.

On Thursday 22 November, Australia’s master storyteller, Peter FitzSimons (Mutiny on the Bounty), brings to life the dramatic story of Captain William Bligh, Fletcher Christian and history's most famous mutiny on HMS Bounty.
