Matthew McConaughey ft. Idris Elba

21st October 7PM AEDT

FANE and Hachette are proud to present this exclusive live event with the Academy Award-winning actor, philanthropist, professor, and self-proclaimed pickle expert to celebrate the publication of Greenlights.

This is neither a traditional memoir, nor an advice book, but rather a playbook based on adventures in McConaughey’s life: an album and a record of what he has seen and learned along the way – ‘my sights and seens, felts and figured outs, cools and shamefuls.’
