Join us on Tuesday, 18 July, as we celebrate the launch of John Howard: From the Pavilion (Connor Court) at the CIS. Former Prime Minister John Howard OM AC will be accompanied by esteemed author Andrew Blyth, the inaugural CIS John Howard Fellow, for an insightful evening.
John Howard: From the Pavilion is a curated collection of Howard’s weekly National Broadsheet columns published in The Australian in 1989. These articles serve as a time capsule, capturing the evolving national and global events of the late 1980s. Through his columns, Howard provides political insights, engaging commentary, and reveals his beliefs and motivations for reform. Seamlessly addressing economic, political, and social affairs, his writings offer policy prescriptions that later shaped his rise to power on March 2, 1996.
Copies of this newly released book will be available for purchase on the night, and attendees will have the opportunity to have their copies signed by John Howard and Andrew Blyth.
