Sir Peter Cosgrove in Conversation with Richard Glover
NSW Public Libraries are proud to present General Sir Peter Cosgrove in conversation with Richard Glover, discussing his warm and fascinating new memoir.
You Shouldn't Have Joined… (an expression much used during his days as a soldier) is the story of Cosgrove's extraordinarily full and eventful life. It is also the story of those who have shared it with him, in particular his wife Lynne.
His memoir allows us an incredible insight into the role and world of Australia's Governor-General. He was there as two prime ministers were toppled by their own party. He was there through disasters both natural and man-made, such as the destruction of MH17. He was there for world leaders, and for ordinary Australians. You Shouldn't Have Joined… is a true reflection of the man himself, filled with intelligence, forthrightness, compassion and a brilliant eye for a telling anecdote.
Australian talk radio presenter and journalist Richard Glover is the author of Love, Clancy: A Dog’s Letters Home.
This presentation will be broadcast online using Zoom. Book your place and we’ll send you a Zoom link to join the meeting (download and install from zoom.us if you haven't already).
