PETER FITZSIMONS – JAMES COOK **SOLD OUT**

***Please note this event is sold out and the waitlist is full, so we are no longer taking bookings.***

The name Captain James Cook is one of the most recognisable in Australian history - an almost mythic figure who is often discussed, celebrated, reviled and debated. Some 240 years after his death, Peter FitzSimons reveals what kind of man James Cook was at heart - his strengths, his weaknesses, his passions and pursuits, failures and successes.
Peter FitzSimons is Australia's bestselling non-fiction writer and the author of a number of highly successful books. His passion is to tell Australian stories, our own stories: of great men and women, of stirring events in our history.
