Join us for this very special event with Anne Summers in conversation, as she discusses her inspiring memoir. One of Australia's most influential women, from cadet journalist, to policy maker, to change agent at large, her new book reveals stories about the famous and powerful people she has worked with or reported on. Anne is refreshingly frank about her own anxieties and mistakes as well as her, at times, heart-breaking family story of violence and ultimately reconciliation.
