David Hill Launches Reckoning at Orange City Library

Wed 20 April at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

o

In Reckoning, David recounts the Forgotten Children’s hard-fought legal victory.

Reckoning is David Hill’s follow up to The Forgotten Children – the heartbreaking, bestselling memoir and history which exposed the abuse against the children at Fairbridge Farm School, near Molong, and became the catalyst for a subsequent quest for justice in Australia and the UK.

In Reckoning, David recounts the Forgotten Children’s hard-fought legal victory which resulted in a record $24 million in compensation from the NSW Supreme Court and public apologies from the Australian and British Governments.

The book is both a tribute to the children who were betrayed by a broken system and a compelling account of an extraordinary quest for justice. It is the story of how David Hill and the other Forgotten Children took on the institutions that tried to break them – and won.

Collins Booksellers, Orange will be supporting the event. Joins us for what promises to be a memorable book launch.
