Writers @ Stanton: Hugh Mackay
Venue: Stanton Library
Australia’s most respected and experienced social researcher, Hugh Mackay, believes something is wrong with the state of the nation and in the lives of its citizens.
Drawing on his 50 years’ experience of listening to Australians talk about their lives and watching some big trends play out, Mackay shows how an unprecedented run of economic growth has failed to deliver a more stable or harmonious society.
Yet Mackay remains optimistic and determined to be part of the solution. In ‘Australia reimagined’, he offers some compelling proposals for a more compassionate society and a call to action to everyone who loves Australia enough to want to make it a better place for us all.
The author talk is followed by question time and the opportunity for book signing.
There is seating for 100 people and standing room is available.
Seating is on a first come, first served basis.
If you have specific accessibility or seating requirements, please contact the library prior to the event.
