An author & social commentator, Sara Dowse was the inaugural head of the first women’s unit in the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, and held this position from 1974 to 1977, under two Prime Ministers (Gough Whitlam and Malcolm Fraser). Her first novel, West Block, is based on her experiences in government. Join us as we visit the quirky and fun Desire Books & Records store to hear Sara share some of her fascinating stories, followed by a Q&A. We’ll then enjoy lunch in Manly by the water (lunch venue TBC).
