Bob Brown: Optimism

Venue Lennox Theatre
Dates 21 May 2016

Bob Brown may have made his reputation as a Senator and Leader of the Greens, but his achievements and passions started much earlier and continue to grow. He has recently released two books. Green Nomads is a photographic journey of Australia’s magnificent Bush Heritage sites. His memoir Optimism is proof even politics can’t diminish his passion, activism or wit. He shares his love of Australia, nature and his belief in people power.

With James Arvanitakis.

Supported by City of Parrmatta Council and Western Sydney University.

Dates & Times:
Saturday 21 May 7:30pm
