Adrian Hyland spent many years in the Northern Territory, living and working among indigenous people. He now teaches at LaTrobe University and lives in the north-east of Melbourne. His first novel, Diamond Dove, won the 2007 Ned Kelly Award for Best First Fiction.

In 2011 Adrian wrote Kinglake-350 about the Black Saturday bushfires. Kinglake-350 is a masterpiece of writing about family, community, country life and what happens when a day of ultimate terror arrives. This is a must for all Dandenong and Yarra Valley people. He paints a dramatic and compelling sequence of events on that day and weaves them into a picture of universal significance and deep fascination.

Adrian will talk about the novel Kinglake 350 and the future role that fires will play in our communities.
