Event description

Description

From Don Bradman’s singular focus to Steven Bradbury’s heroic not falling over, and from the alarming number of footballers caught urinating in public to the recent heartening rise of the AFLW, sport has shaped Australians’ sense of self. But how did we get here? Australia’s least insightful sports satirist, Titus O’Reily, explains.

Best known for his hilarious Twitter feed, witty podcasts and popular sports blog, Titus’ first book A Thoroughly Unhelpful History of Australian Sport explores the sometimes scandalous, and often bizarre, history which has led to this nation’s great love affair with sport.

Taking you through the legendary characters, historic pub meetings, sagas, scandals and endless acronyms, Titus examines how sport has shaped this wide brown country into the greatest nation to ever stride the sporting globe.

Joining us to launch Titus’ book is radio and television host, writer, producer and comedian Sam Pang.
Bookings essential.

This event is sponsored by the Thomas, Samuel & George Ewing Trust, Brunswick Street Books and Penguin.
