A Wild Kind of Tune

Miriel Lenore

The title of this poetry narrative - A Wild Kind of Tune - captures perfectly the imaginative journey into the poignant psycho-geography of Miriel Lenore's maternal great-grandmother, Caroline. In a wild tale arcing from 1845 to the present, in poetry underpinned by meticulous research, we inhabit settler society with all its attendant joys, hardship and grief as we careen with Caroline through her journey of love, loss and horror into madness.

Susan Marsden's history covers an extensive and environmentally complex region, now a large swathe of western metropolitan Adelaide. ...

Adelaide Festival 60 Years

1960-2020

Catherine McKinnon

The Adelaide Festival is as much shaped by people and place as it in turn shapes people and place; its identity is a weird and wild shifting thing. It is not owned by one individual, but belongs to everyone.

Adelaide Festival 60 Years is an astounding cacophony of images and tales that revel in the life of the Festival since its founding in 1960 - remembering what it was, anticipating what it might be. ...

Adelaide's Dissenting Headmaster

John Lorenzo Young and his premier private school

Diana Chessell

The discovery of schoolboy signatures - hidden under peeling wallpaper in an old Adelaide schoolhouse for 130 years - has led to this documentary history of John Lorenzo Young's school and its 1600 students, among them the leading lights of the colony and many still prominent in South Australian business and academic life today. John Lorenzo Young, the dissenting headmaster, was a brilliant and creative teacher, a graduate in the 'sciences of the enlightenment' from King's College London. He taught these new sciences to the sons of Adelaide's dissenting majority from 1852-1880, just 16 years after settlement. ...
