Event description

Description

David Marr, one of Australia's eloquent writer's will be discussing his new book "My Country" with Richard Fidler. It includes early works, such as his review of the first Rocky Horror Picture Show and his account of the 1978 Mardi Gras police bashings, all the way to his political pieces on Tony Abbott, Pauline Hanson and Kevin Rudd to name but a few.

Never afraid to express his opinion, this promises to be a very lively discussion.

Doors open at 6pm. Talk starts at 6.30pm



David Marr has written for the Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The Saturday Paper, The Guardian and The Monthly, and has served as editor of the National Times, reporter for Four Corners and presenter of ABC TV’s Media Watch. His books include Patrick White: A Life, The High Price of Heaven, Dark Victory (with Marian Wilkinson), Panic and six bestselling Quarterly Essays: His Master’s Voice, Power Trip, Political Animal, The Prince, Faction Man and The White Queen.

Richard Fidler presents Conversations with Richard Fidler, an in-depth, up-close-and personal interview program broadcast across Australia on ABC Radio. He’s interviewed prime ministers, astronauts, writers and scientists, but the program often features remarkable people who are unknown to the wider world. Conversations is the most downloaded podcast in Australia. Richard is the author of the best-selling books Ghost Empire and Saga Land, a journey into the sagas of Iceland, co-written with Kári Gíslason. Saga Land was awarded the 2018 Indie Book Award for non-fiction.
