The Hills Shire Libraries present An Evening with Kerry O’Brien

Kerry O’Brien is one of Australia’s most respected journalists, with six Walkley awards including the Gold Walkley and the Walkley for Outstanding Leadership in journalism. He has borne witness to many of the life-changing milestones of our lives, interviewed the great and good, and explained the intricacies of the world to millions of Australians as we sat in the comfort and safety of our lounge rooms. ‘

In a career spanning more than fifty years, Kerry has worked for newspapers, television and a wire service, and as a foreign correspondent. Thirty-three of those years were at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation where he cut his teeth on the trail-blazing current affairs programs This Day Tonight and Four Corners. He was the inaugural presenter of Lateline for six years, the editor and presenter of 7.30 for fifteen years, and the presenter of Four Corners for five.

Enjoy an evening with Kerry as he discusses his much-awaited memoir. An intimate groundbreaking account told with wit and insight O’Brien reflects on the big events, the lessons learned and lessons ignored, along with the foibles and strengths of public figures who construct our world. The end result is a memoir like no other – an engrossing study of a private life lived in the public eye and wrapped in nearly threequarters of a century of social and political history.

The evening will conclude with book sales and signing conducted by Dymocks Rouse Hill.
