Venue: Stanton Library
Council Event
Cost: Free

Event Details

For some time, a majority of Australians have been saying they want change – on climate and energy, on housing and inequality, on corporate donations and their corrupting effect on democracy, to name just a few.

Recent attention has focused on the angry, reactionary minority. But is there a progressive centre? How does it see Australia’s future? And what is to be learned from the failures of previous governments? Was marriage reform just the beginning, or will the shock-jocks and their paymasters hold their ground?

In this vivid, grounded Quarterly Essay on politics and progress, Rebecca Huntley looks at the state of the nation and asks: what does social-democratic Australia want, and why?

 

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.
