Explore ten great books presented by ten celebrated scholars in a supportive and lively masterclass environment.

This year we celebrate two great Australian works, Donald Horne's pivotal The Lucky Country and David Malouf's iconic first novel Johnno; we explore great European historical fiction with The Lost Estate and The Leopard; we take on the quintessential Greek tragedy Medea; tackle two of the most influential scientific and environmental texts, Darwin's Origin of Species and Silent Spring; argue about the economic and philosophical revolution that was Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations; explore the unpronounceable but highly celebrated 15th century Venetian book Hypnerotomachia Poliphili; and for the first time in the Great Books series we will analyse a religious text, the Qu'ran.
