Bendigo Weekly – Friday, July 19, 2019

No win situation There are currently articles in the press regarding the representations by “family members” to have Maryrose Cuskelly who is the author of Wedderburn removed from the Bendigo Writers Festival. Wedderburn is a factual account of the tragedy that struck...
