Bookoccino is pleased to welcome the wonderful RICHARD FIDLER, host of ABC's Conversations to the Northern Beaches on Friday 26th July.
For 13 years, Richard has exhibited his polymath intellect and humanity in interviews with an astonishing array of guests, both infamous and unknown - from journalists, novelists and scientists, to musicians, comedians, pilots and politicians. A former standup comedian and performer with the Doug Anthony Allstars, he is also the accomplished author of bestselling travelogue Ghost Empire, about his trip to Byzantium with his 14-year old son, and co-author of Saga Land, exploring Icelandic myth and culture.
2020 will see the release of a new volume on the history of Prague.
The most prolific of Australia's acclaimed interviewers, Richard's Conversations are downloaded 3 million times a month.
Now you can hear him in person.
He will be 'in conversation' with Bookoccino co-owner Raymond Bonner, an author and journalist who roamed the world for The New York Times and The New Yorker, reporting from nearly a hundred countries.
Bound by a shared passion for history and travel, the two friends will cover the Emperor Constantine, the origins of Christianity and the history of Prague as seen through the lens of today's increasing authoritarianism.
You've invited him into your homes every morning, and marveled at the depth and range of his interviews.
Now enjoy a drink with Richard Fidler as the sun sets over Avalon Beach, before settling in for a comfortable evening of fascinating conversation.
And, if you've ever thought, 'I'd like to ask him'......Here is your opportunity.
