Event description
Sallyanne Atkinson will launch the autobiography of former Queensland Premier Russell Cooper.

About this event

Former Brisbane Lord Mayor, Sallyanne Atkinson will launch this entertaining and revealing memoir which charts the evolution of the grazier turned politician Russell Cooper through his ‘fires of experience’ from life on the land to the halls of State Parliament.

Cooper writes candidly about his youth, the people and the Party that influenced him politically, providing a rare insight into his trademark decisive approach to Queensland’s prisons and police powers and to the nation shaping event of gun law reform.

Russell Cooper writes like he speaks, at pace and without fear – his distinctive voice and turn of phrase hits the page and the reader. He addresses some mistruths, misunderstandings and misgivings with surprising honesty, from his heady days in the Young Country Party to taking on the top job for the Queensland Nationals.

It is a relatable account of the political theatre that plays out behind the scenes without losing sight of what matters most – the people of Queensland.

Come and meet Russell Cooper live, talk to him and buy personally signed copies of his book. Entry includes finger food and drink and there is plenty of offstreet parking at our offices in Woolloongabba.
