  4. Winter Warmers: Book Launch – Fenian Hunter

Published 29 May 2024

Join local author Peter Murphy for the launch of his latest novel, 'Fenian Hunter'.

Our presenter for this session is Peter Murphy.

Join Peter to learn about the research journey he embarked upon while writing his latest historical novel, Fenian Hunter. Among other true stories of Irish political prisoners held in 19th-century Western Australia, this book includes the escape of poet John Boyle O'Reilly from Bunbury upon a whaling barque in 1869.

The launch will include readings from the book followed by a Q & A session as well as book sales and signing.

Join us to escape the winter weather and hear from seasoned storytellers and experts sharing the lesser-known tales of Bunbury’s histories with our Winter Warmer program.
