Event Description

Walkley Award–winning journalist Jeff Sparrow discusses his seventh book, "Crimes Against Nature", which recasts ordinary people as the solution rather than the problem when it comes to preserving our planet. Telling stories of hope with ‘the lucidity and animation of a true crime podcast’ ("The Saturday Paper"), Sparrow uses fresh material to offer a more optimistic take on the most pressing issue of our time. With Elizabeth McCarthy.

Jeff Sparrow is a regular columnist for "Guardian Australia", the ex-editor of Overland and a former 3RRR Breakfaster. He works at the Centre for Advancing Journalism at the University of Melbourne.

Elizabeth McCarthy is a radio producer and presenter. She reviews books on 3RRR and the ABC. She was a 2021 Stella Prize judge and was convenor of the 2019 Victorian Premier's Literary Award for Fiction.
