Stan Grant: The Queen is Dead
Stan Grant | George Williams
In this timely talk, leading journalist Stan Grant shares insight from his new book, The Queen is Dead – building an impassioned argument on the necessity for an end to monarchy in Australia, the need for a republic, and what can be done to reckon with our past and negotiate a just settlement with First Nations people. Stan appears in conversation with George Williams.
