New Edition has been home to lovers of books for over 30 years. Established in Freo during the heady days of the America’s Cup, New Edition quickly became a local favourite. With its wide array of literary, art, poetry and non-fiction titles, it is widely considered one of Australia’s best independent bookshops. Regularly hosting author events and launches, New Edition is a vital part of Fremantle and Perth’s literary community.

Wednesday 1st June 6pm - 8pm

Wakefield Press joins with New Edition in inviting you to the launch by Senator Scott Ludlam of Breaking the Boundaries: Australian Activists Tell Their Stories, edited by Yvonne Allen and Joy Noble.

another will be content to get angry at the TV news? Breaking the Boundaries
looks for answers in the stories of 46 Australians, young and old, fighting to be heard in a range of areas including human rights, gender issues, and the environment.

Featuring WA contributors: Jo Vallentine, Judy Blyth, Shirley Collins, Brenda Conochie, Jamie Yallup Farrant, Adrian Glamorgan, Heidi Hardisty, Jan Lewis, and Mia Pepper.
