On 23 February at 6pm Mary Ryan’s bookshop in Fletcher St, Byron Bay will be alive with conversation – and no doubt plenty of laughter. Kerry O’Brien will be in conversation with our very own Mungo MacCallum about his new book, The Good, The Bad & The Unlikely: Australia’s Prime Ministers, published by Black Inc. Says Mungo, ‘I hope I’ll be flogging them by the armful and signing them. Rare unsigned copies will also be available. With luck they might be serving bad white wine.’ All welcome, reservations not needed.
