Event Details

Grattan Institute is launching our annual Summer Reading List for the Prime Minister, to be held at BMW Edge, Federation Square, on Tuesday 11 December.

7.30 Report presenter Leigh Sales will join Grattan’s CEO, John Daley, and Cities Program Director Jane-Frances Kelly in a discussion of the List.

Now in its fourth year, the List contains books and articles that we believe the Prime Minister – or indeed any Australian – will find stimulating over the break. They are all good reads that we think say something interesting about Australia and its future. And they make terrific Christmas gifts.

We hope that as a valued friend and supporter of Grattan you will be able to attend.

About the speakers:

Leigh Sales anchors the ABC's flagship nightly current affairs program, 7.30. A Walkley Award winner, Leigh has presented Lateline and was Washington Correspondent from 2001 to 2005. She is the author of two books and formerly wrote a blog about books and reading called "Well-read Head".

John Daley, Grattan’s CEO, is one of Australia’s leading public policy thinkers with 20 years experience in the public, private and university sectors. He has worked for ANZ and McKinsey in a career that also includes expertise in law, finance, education, and workers compensation.

Jane-Frances Kelly, Grattan’s Cities Program Director, spent three years in the British Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit. She has led strategy work for the UK, Queensland, Victorian and Commonwealth Governments. She also worked for The University of Melbourne, Victoria Police and the Cape York Institute.


This year we are proud to publish our list in partnership with Readings.
