Event description

Description

Professor Gareth Evans will join Chris Bowen in conversation to discuss his new book, Incorrigible Optimist: A Political Memoir.

In his book Professor Evans looks back over the highs and lows of his public life as a student activist, civil libertarian, law reformer, industry minister, international policymaker, educator and politician. He explains why it is that, despite multiple disappointments, he continues to believe that a safer, saner and more decent world is achievable, and why, for all its frustrations, politics remains an indispensable profession not only for megalomaniacs but idealists.

As ALP members and supporters, we hope you are able to join us at this event and hear first-hand insights into the life of one of Labor's longest-serving federal Cabinet Ministers and one of Australia's most commended political and international leaders.

'Lively, like its author... a must-read for anyone interested in Australian and international politics'. - BOB HAWKE

'Gareth Evans's career serves as an inspiration... one of the world's great internationalists'. - KOFI ANNAN

Book signings will take place after the conversation. All proceeds from the ticket price will go towards the Victorian ALP campaign in the Northcote by-election.
