UNMODERATED: RICK MORTON ON MONEY-
THE GAUNTLET SERIES
In three separate sessions, we feature three clear-eyed non-fiction thinkers. Each will take to the stage for an hour to riff on a theme and throw down the gauntlet.
Money: Journalist Rick Morton is first up. In One Hundred Years of Dirt, his searing memoir of growing up in rural Australia, Morton provides a condemning account of the class system in this country. As part of the Gauntlet series, Morton offers further thoughts on his work as a reporter covering politics and media for The Australian and now The Saturday Paper.
Unmoderated is a mini-lecture series set to provoke and challenge. Be prepared to have bubbles burst and your preconceptions unsettled as each author strives to answer as many questions as they are asked.
