Brendan Gleeson: Australian Heartlands at Gleebooks

/noise/talks | Link
Went to Gleebooks in the evening to listen to Peter Garrett and Brendan Gleeson talk about the latter's Australian Heartlands: Making Space For Hope In The Suburbs. Elizabeth Farrelly makes some interesting comments about it, but some are a bit off: yes, the book did win the John Iremonger Award for Writing on Public Issues (surely that's not his real name?), and that was why it got published, at least I understand it.
