Richard Glover: In Conversation - Best Wishes

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Join us for an exclusive The Sydney Morning Herald subscriber event to celebrate columnist Richard Glover’s latest book, Best Wishes.

Richard will be in conversation with Spectrum editor Melanie Kembrey for a revealing chat about his work as a columnist. He will share never-heard-before tales about some of his most memorable characters, including Jocasta, Batboy and The Space Cadet.

Richard will also discuss his wishes for making the world a better place.

Do you hate noisy restaurants, pre-ripped jeans and pedestrians who walk five abreast? Do you also have a problem with plastic-wrapped fruit, climate-change deniers and take-away sandwiches priced at $14.95? And, most of all, do you think the world would be a better place if people got back their sense of humour?

Here's proof you are not alone. Heartfelt and hilarious, serious but sly, Best Wishes is the encyclopedia of 'can do better'. It's a plea for a better world - one wish at a time.

“I wish I could think, hope, laugh, dream and, indeed, write like Richard Glover. And I wish every Australian could read this book. A soaring tribute to the power of wishful thinking” Trent Dalton

“Glover asks life's big questions and helps us celebrate the simple joys - bin night, tax receipts that don't fade and the secret thrill of high-pressure hosing” Lisa Millar, co-host ABC-TV's News Breakfast

“Charming, funny and sincere, this is yet another winning book from the only Boomer worth listening to. A triumph!” Tom Ballard, comedian

“If life is better when we laugh, then this book is the balm” Jacinta Parsons, broadcaster and writer
