In 1976, local farmers and loggers of a small country town came head-to-head with the new arrivals – the hippies. It ignited a war of ideologies – social, environmental – where the answers are never black-and-white, where passions ran high and sometimes violent, and where the shape of the land would be impacted for generations. This is the town of Repentance, the setting to Alison Gibbs engaging debut novel. Join her in conversation with award-winning author and journalist Jess Hill to explore themes that many may find quite close to home.
