Looking for Alibrandi

It is now over twenty years since Melina Marchetta’s acclaimed novel Looking for Alibrandi was published (1992), yet the issues in the novel are as current today as they were then.

The Aquinas Library holds a copy of both the novel Looking for Alibrandi (F MAR), the audiobook F MAR (ask Library staff) and the movie DVD0095.

The full movie can also be watched on YouTube.

The Google book of Looking for Alibrandi (1/2 book only) is available here.
