The Honourable Dame Quentin Bryce AD CVO has enjoyed a distinguished career as an academic, lawyer, community and human rights advocate, university college principal, and vice-regal representative in Queensland, and Australia. Quentin served as Australia’s twenty-fifth Governor-General and hand-wrote more than fifty letters each week. She wrote to those she had met and connected with as her role took her from palaces to outback schools, from war zones to memorials.

Generous, witty and always heartfelt, her letter-writing skills were honed at boarding school, where she would write to her parents every Sunday.
Dear Quentin is a rich collection of the letters the Governor-General wrote and received during her six-year term. Royalties from this book will be donated to Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, making a real difference to child health through world-leading research.
