Did You Know?


According to Beyond the Rock, a Joan Lindsay biography, junior editor Sandra Forbes was one of the first publishing professionals to read Lindsay's Picnic at Hanging Rock manuscript. She wrote a letter to Lindsay saying, "I really enjoyed reading this, it seems to have the right blend of 'truth' and fiction. Given that the actual disappearance of the girls is a fact, it is a fascinating problem, well presented in a style very much in keeping with the period and personages involved." See more »
