Stuart Kells & Ian Gow Author Talk

The Big Four: The Curious Past and Perilous Future of the Global Accounting Monopoly by Ian D. Gow and Stuart Kells discusses the hold the so-called Big Four accounting and audit firms – Deloitte, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, and KPMG – have on our community. Together, these firms earn more than US$100 billion annually and employ almost one million people. In many profound ways, they have changed how we work, how we manage, how we invest and how we are governed. Is this a good thing?

James Button will join Gow and Kells for a lively discussion about how and why this has happened.

Anita Heiss

Growing Up Aboriginal in Australia Book Launch - Brisbane

Join the Minister for Environment and the Great Barrier Reef, Minister for Science and Minister for the Arts, the Honourable Leeanne Enoch along with editor, Dr Anita Heiss for the launch Growing Up Aboriginal in Australia.

What is it like to grow up Aboriginal in Australia? This anthology, compiled by award-winning author Anita Heiss, attempts to showcase as many diverse voices, experiences and stories as possible in order to answer that question. Each account reveals, to some degree, the impacts of invasion and colonisation – on language, on country, on ways of life, and on how people are treated daily in the community, the education system, the workplace and friendship groups.

This event commences at 6:30pm. Printed tickets are not issued and your booking will be on a door list under your surname. 

Date:   Friday 27 April

Time:   6:00pm

Venue: Avid Reader
