Book Launch: Failing Nature - The Rise & Fall of the Wilderness Society
a Conversation with Christine Milne & Bill Lines
6:30 pm Friday 20 September
at the Fern Tree Tavern, 680 Huon Road, Fern Tree 7054 
FREE, but bookings essential

Join The Australia Institute and former Leader of the Australian Greens, Christine Milne, in conversation with author Bill Lines for the launch of his new book: Failing Nature - The Rise and Fall of the Wilderness Society, at the Fern Tree Tavern, Friday 20 September at 6:30 pm.

Also attending the launch will be Tom Allen, campaign manager for the Wilderness Society Tasmania, to talk about what is coming up for the organisation over summer.

Failing Nature tells the story of how a few bushwalkers and nature lovers organised to prevent a dam on a wild river, prevailed and then expanded nationally and internationally to advocate on behalf of the living world.

But behind The Wilderness Society's success lay an internal struggle between nature conservation and social justice. In his book, author Bill Lines' challenges this emerging ethos and invites the reader to reconsider where Nature stands in this beautiful land.
