NEW: Biography - Australian

SAFE SPACE

Alyssa Huynh says ‘I’ve played the role of the quiet and embarrassed Asian girl who shyly laughs along more than I should have in my lifetime. Enough is enough.’

Growing up, Alyssa heard stories from her family about their journey from Vietnam to Australia following the fall of Saigon and the racism they experienced upon arrival. While the discrimination she faced was different, she never quite felt like she belonged either. This is a book for anyone who believes that racism has no place in Australia’s future and is ready to take action.

DEAR MUTZI

Tess Scholfield-Peters tells the story of her grandfather, Harry Peters, formerly Hermann Ludwig Pollnow – known to his family as Mutzi. Born in Berlin in 1920, as a teenager he fled Nazi Germany and landed in rural Australia. Harry's parents, Max and Edith, stayed and perished in Nazi camps. This is a story, of forced migration, assimilation, loss, resilience and determination despite the odds.

SISTER VIV

Grantlee Kieza tells the inspiring story of the nursing hero, Sister Viv, who survived a wartime massacre and dedicated her life to saving others.

Australian Army nurse Vivian Bullwinkel was just twenty-six when Japanese soldiers marched her and her fellow nurses into the shallow waters of a remote beach to be executed.

HUMAN? A LIE THAT'S BEEN KILLING US SINCE 1788

Ziggy Ramo's Human? is the story of his experience growing up under the weight of the lie that 97% of the Australian population are human, and the others simply 'Indigenous', devoid of the same basic rights

We've had 235 years of continued destruction in the name of 'civilised progress', under an oppressive colonial system that punches down on almost everyone. We all deserve more. But to move forward we have to be honest about the past.

MINE IS THE KINGDOM

Journalist David Hardaker had been investigating the Hillsong phenomenon for several years, gaining unparalleled access to former insiders, when he received a tip-off. Something big was going down.

In 2023, the curtain finally came down on Brian Houston. The rock star of Pentecostalism, former Global Senior Pastor of Hillsong Church, was acquitted of concealing his father's sexual abuse of a minor, but it was too late. His glittering megachurch had disowned him. How had it come to this? And how did Hillsong, the brightest star of international evangelical Christianity, fall to earth so spectacularly?

THE LUCKY ONES

Award-winning journalist and former foreign correspondent Melinda Ham presents a moving and meticulously researched book of refugee stories spanning 70 years and tracking journeys from Iraq, Afghanistan, Poland, Tibet, Vietnam and Zaire and offers a window into the complex history of Australian refugee experiences in their own words.

SCOTT RYDER • SIGNED COPIES • FORGED IN FIRE!

An Australian commando's story of life and death on the frontline, FORGED IN FIRE takes us inside the secretive world of the Australian commandos.

'Prepare to be riveted by this extraordinary account from one of Australia's elite warriors. His firsthand experiences vividly recounted offer an unparalleled glimpse into the courage, strategy, and sacrifice required to be the best.' - Daniel Keighran VC

'A visceral and all too vivid account of war's chaos and destruction. You will never want to be in the fire that has so painfully forged Scott Ryder.' - Jack Thompson AM

'Scott is not famous; his chest is not bedecked with the grandest tin and ribbon. His voice is from among us rather than up on high. And his account of the DNA of the commando, the lesser sung super-soldier, is all the better for it.' - from the foreword by Chris Masters, author of Flawed Hero
