Kerry O'Brien to de-construct Paul Keating

BYRON Bay Writers Festival has announced two exciting events over the next two months.

On October 28, Peter Garrett will appear at The Byron Theatre to discuss his highly anticipated memoir Big Blue Sky.

Don't miss the remarkable musician, activist and former Cabinet Minister in conversation with David Leser as they delve into his incredible life, covering everything from Garrett's childhood, rock star career with Midnight Oil, environmental activism and his time as a minister in the Rudd and Gillard governments.

Then on November 11 the BBWF will present Kerry O'Brien on Paul Keating, the visionary, reformer, true believer, rabble rouser and our most intriguing Prime Minister.

Building on the transcripts of the must-watch television event of 2013 ABC TV's Keating: The Interviews  O'Brien has gathered an enormous bank of new material for what is surely the most anticipated political book of the year.
