Event description

Description

Join Jacqui Lambie in-conversation with Phil Brown as she discusses her autobiography, Rebel With A Cause.

Jacqui Lambie has been a tireless campaigner for the things she passionately believes in, such as a better deal for our military veterans and a better system of care for those afflicted by the scourge of ice addiction. These are real issues for her, things she’s lived through and not just hot-button issues raised by focus groups.

Her autobiography is not a political book. In fact, politics barely gets a mention until the final chapters. It’s the story of her life as an ordinary working class girl from Tasmania, and her journey through the army, her enforced medical retirement after 10 years following a horrendous back injury, her medical discharge, her fight to get adequate treatment and compensation from the DVA, her battles with addiction and depression, her struggles to raise two kids as a single mother, the slow rebuilding of her life, and her roller-coaster ride as a politician.

The subject matter is real and often raw, but Jacqui handles it with humour, honesty and dignity.

Books will be available for purchase on the night, or bring your copies from home for Jacqui to sign.
