Dirty Secrets: Uncovered ASIO Files
Thursday, May 22 2014
4:30 - 5:30 PM
Sydney Theatre at Walsh Bay, 22 Hickson Road, Walsh Bay

Event type: Panel

Imagine you’ve been spied on for years, then you get a chance to peek into your files. That’s just what Anne Summers, Michael Kirby and Elizabeth Evatt did when they read through their ASIO folders. What they found, and how they felt about it, makes for profound, sometimes humorous, reading in Dirty Secrets. They talk with the book’s editor Meredith Burgmann about how they confronted – and sometimes reclaimed – their pasts in this book where those being watched look right back.

Appearing with: Michael Kirby, Elizabeth Evatt, Meredith Burgmann (facilitator)

Ticketed: $25/$20
