Richard Fidler will join Alex Sloan in conversation to discuss his new book, Ghost Empire, his popular ABC radio series, Conversations with Richard Fidler, and the Doug Anthony All Stars.
Ghost Empire is a captivating blend of the historical and the contemporary. Richard’s trip with his 14 year-old son in 2014 to Instanbul has led to a book which reflects Richard’s passion for the rich history of the Byzantine Empire. Ghost Empire has been termed “a beautifully written ode to a lost civilisation, and a warmly observed father-son adventure far from home”.
Conversations is the most popular ABC podcast in Australia, with over 16 million downloaded programs last year.
Richard was a member of the iconic Australian comedic trio, the Doug Anthony All Stars from 1984 to 1994.
Alex Sloan is the host of the Afternoons program on 666 ABC Canberra.
Copies of the Ghost Empire will be on sale thanks to the ANU Co op and pre-signings will take place at 6.15pm and after the dinner. Dinner begins at 7pm.
Tickets for this event are $69 and include a main course, dessert, a glass of wine and tea or coffee.
