Once Were Leaders - Max Gillies

 
 
 

Is Australia suffering a leadership deficit? There was a time when politicians could inspire us. But were they really better than the current crop or has our perception benefited from the passage of time? Is it a case of more things change the more they stay the same?

Matthew Reilly
in conversation with Chris Flynn
 
Matthew Reilly was recently dubbed “publishing’s
boy wonder“ by the Sydney Morning Herald. His
action-packed blockbuster novels read like Hollywood
movies, with the sound turned up – and they’ve sold
over seven million copies worldwide.
 Reilly’s latest large-scale thriller, The Great Zoo of
China, involves a secret new animal species, the
greatest zoo ever built, and a group of journalists
assured they’re perfectly safe – until they’re not.
Come to Frankston and meet the Harrison Ford of
Australian publishing, in conversation with Chris
Flynn.
