Gleebooks Author Talks: Margaret Simons and Lenore Taylor
Margaret Simons, author of Penny Wong: Passion and Principle, in conversation with Lenore Taylor.
In this first-ever biography of Penny Wong, acclaimed journalist Margaret Simons traces her story: from her life in Malaysia, to her student activism in Adelaide, to her time in the turbulent Rudd and Gillard governments, to her key role as a voice of reason in the polarising campaign to legalise same-sex marriage. What emerges is a picture of a leader for modern Australia, a cool-headed and cautious yet charismatic figure of piercing intelligence.
