Fremantle Heritage Festival says
Robert Drewe was assigned to the Fremantle office of The West Australian in 1961 when he began his career as a cadet reporter. There was rich fodder for an intrepid young journalist: unsolved murders, boating disasters, prison escapes, heaving brothels, hotel bloodhouses and wild ambulance rides, all of which belied the town’s apparent mercantile respectability. Since then, Robert has become one of the nation’s most notable storytellers, famous for such works as The Bodysurfers and The Shark Net.

In this special sunset launch of the Fremantle Heritage Festival, Robert will demonstrate how truth, myth and story can sometimes make for the best of histories.

This event also includes the launch of Fremantle: Empire, Faith and Conflict (the latest volume of Studies in Western Australian History) and showcases some of Fremantle’s best history-makers in market stalls.
