Dr Meredith Lake
Meredith is an historian and broadcaster, especially curious about how Australians reckon with the big questions of life in this place.
Still an historian at heart, Meredith is still mulling over the themes of her PhD thesis - to do with religion, colonialism, and the Australian environment.
Meredith's latest book isThe Bible in Australia: a cultural history - which won the Australian History prize at the 2019 Prime Minister's Literary Awards and the 2019 NSW Premier's History awards. It was also named winner of the Non-Fiction award at the 2020 Adelaide Festival Awards for Literature, the 2019 CHASS Book of the year and 2018 Australian Christian Book of the Year.
Meredith loves talking with all kinds of people about the ideas, places and communities that matter most to them. She has appeared at writers festivals in Sydney, Adelaide, Bendigo and Brisbane, and given talks at several universities and colleges in Australia and New Zealand.
