Wed. 7 December 2016, 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm AEDT
Grattan Institute will launch our annual Summer Reading List for the Prime Minister, in Melbourne at the State Library of Victoria on Wednesday 7 December.
Every year Grattan Institute releases a summer reading list for the Prime Minister. It recommends books and articles that the Prime Minister, or any Australian interested in public debate, will find both stimulating and cracking good reads. This year's list will be announced soon. ABC Presenter Sabra Lane will join Grattan Institute CEO John Daley in Melbourne to discuss how this year's titles illuminate some of Australia’s most important debates.
Sabra Lane has been covering federal politics in Canberra since 2008 and has been Chief Political Correspondent on nightly TV current affairs flagship 7.30 since September 2013.

Before going to Canberra Sabra was a reporter for ABC Radio Current Affairs in Sydney, as well as regular fill-in Executive Producer on AM, The World Today and PM. Prior to joining the ABC she was EP of the Seven Network’s weekly national news and public affairs program Sunday Sunrise for more than four years. Sabra began her journalism career in 1989 in Adelaide as a reporter/producer for the Ten Network. Sabra will shortly be taking over as presenter of flagship ABC Radio Current Affairs program AM.
