Episode 140 of 1214 episodes

Books+ takes you to a Tasmanian riot in the 1870s with Rohan Wilson's To Name those Lost, and into a Western Australian convalescent home for kids with polio in the 1950s with Joan London's The Golden Age. The bookshelf travels through the ice, from Tasmania into Antarctica, with Favel Parrett and When the Night Comes; and it opens up both steamy Queensland roads and strange future worlds with Ellen van Neerven's Heat and Light.
