Author Talk: Quentin Beresford

In conversation with Nicole Abadee on Beresford's new book, Adani and the War Over Coal

Coal is the political, economic and cultural totem for debates about climate change. Quentin Bereford’s searing book takes apart the pivotal role of the Adani Carmichael mine and the conflict over coal in Australia. Looking into the social, environmental and economic elements of this big fight, this book tells the full story of one of the lightning rod issues of our time.


Quentin Beresford will be in conversation with Nicole Abadee, who is the books writer for The Australian Financial Review Magazine and also writes about books occasionally for Good Weekend. Nicole appears regularly at writers festivals as a facilitator and she also runs a literary consultancy.
