Kerry O’Brien: Keating

Venue Lennox Theatre
Dates 21 May 2016

Towards the end of {Keating}, the former PM offers these words of wisdom: ‘We all get carried out in the end. The big question is, what sort of trail you can blaze’. Love him or hate him, Paul Keating lights up whatever political stage he walks on. Veteran journalist Kerry O’Brien talks about his revealing book of conversations with Keating that falls somewhere between biography and autobiography, and may be the key biography of one of Australia’s most formidable leaders (a man whose vision transformed the economic and political landscape forever). Introduced by the Director of the Whitlam Institute, Eric Sidoti.

Supported by City of Parramatta Council and Western Sydney University.

Dates & Times:
Saturday 21 May 5:30pm
