The Last Charge of the Australian Light Horse with Peter FitzSimons

As part of the Australian Heritage Festival and to celebrate the library building's 20th anniversary, the Singleton Public Library will host Peter Fitzsimmons at the Civic Centre to speak about his new book, The Last Charge of the Australian Light Horse.

From the bestselling author of Kokoda and Gallipoli, The Last Charge of the Australian Light Horse tells the extraordinary story of the Australian Light Horse and their defining World War I battle: the iconic cavalry charge at Beersheba in October 1917, and the brave men who built the legend.

Peter FitzSimons AM is Australia’s bestselling non-fiction writer, and for the past 35 years has also been a journalist and columnist with the Sydney Morning Herald and the Sun-Herald. He is the author of several highly successful books, including Breaker Morant, Burke and Wills, Monash’s Masterpiece, Kokoda, Ned Kelly, and Gallipoli, as well as biographies of such notable Australians as Sir Douglas Mawson, Nancy Wake, and Nick Farr-Jones.

We invite you to join us for an enriching evening, starting with the author’s engaging talk, followed by a Q&A session. Copies of the book will be available for purchase on the night and a book signing opportunity with the author.
