Grattan Institute launched our annual Summer Reading List for the Prime Minister at the State Library of Victoria on Wednesday 4 December.
Lucy Turnbull joined Grattan’s CEO, John Daley in a discussion of the List.
Now in its fifth year, the List contains books and articles that we believe the Prime Minister – or indeed any Australian – will find stimulating over the break. They are all good reads that we think say something interesting about Australia and its future. And they make terrific Christmas gifts.
About the speakers:
