Join Ross McMullin, award-winning historian and biographer, as he steps up to the crease to enlighten and entertain you about Waverley’s past.

Ross is a renowned storyteller, and his latest book Life So Full of Promise features a young cricket sensation who lived at Ebley Street and lit up Waverley Park. Ross will be regaling us with stories from Life So Full of Promise, which also unveils a popular Sydney doctor and a brilliant barrister who was a potential prime minister. It has been shortlisted for Waverley’s national book prize, the Nib Literary Award. It’s his second multi-biography about Australia's lost generation of World War I, following Farewell Dear People, which was awarded the Prime Minister’s Prize for Australian History.

His other books include his multi-award-winning biography of Australia’s most famous fighting general, Pompey Elliott, and another acclaimed biography, Will Dyson: Australia’s Radical Genius. Don't miss this chance to be bowled over by Ross McMullin as he brings these extraordinary yet unknown Australians back to life.
