Backseat Drivers by Craig Cormick

Imagine driving down the length of the Hume Highway with Captain Cook, Henry Lawson, Caroline Chisholm and Ned Kelly as travelling companions.  Craig Cormick takes readers on a road trip from Sydney to Melbourne with some unlikely and highly-opinionated hitchhikers from the past.

Join author Craig Cormick and National Library of Australia Treasures Curator Nat Williams for the launch of this hilarious and biting satire on the intersection and byways of the past, present and future.
