Join George Megalogenis as he takes part in a conversation session about his soon-to-be-released book Australia’s Second Chance.

The best-selling author of The Australian Moment, Megalogenis weaves history into a lively tale while chronicling the waves of immigration from the First Fleet onwards.

Including fresh interviews with former leaders, the author and journalist impressively decodes economics and demography to give greater insight into Australia’s history dating back to 1788, when locals first came into contact with migrants.

Megalogenis explores how the doors were shut to immigration in an attempt to hoard what we had, resulting in 100 years of decline.

Giving an invaluable insight into the Australian identity, the writer poses that now Australia is being given a second chance. But will we use it or lose it?

This is a ticketed event, costing $5 per person.
