This exclusive 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.’
McConaughey will share anecdotes, lessons, and damn good yarns from his life: from growing up as an adventurous kid in a tough-love Texas home of rule breakers, to revelatory journeys to Australia, Peru, and Mali, to his early days in Hollywood and meteoric rise to fame.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend an evening with one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actors, as he explores his guide to success and satisfaction through life’s lessons learned the hard way.

Join Peter FitzSimons, Australia’s bestselling non-fiction writer as he investigates the iconic, infamous figure of Australian folklore in conversation with Richard Glover on the release of his new book Breaker Morant
Most Australians have heard of the Boer War and of Harry 'Breaker' Morant, a figure who rivals Ned Kelly as an archetypal Australian folk hero. But Morant was a complicated man.
Peter FitzSimons’ passion is to tell Australian stories, our own stories: of great men and women, of stirring events in our history. He has authored many highly acclaimed books including Ned Kelly, Gallipoli and Kokoda, and biographies of such notable Australians as Sir Douglas Mawson and Nick Farr-Jones. He grew up on a farm north of Sydney, went to boarding school in Sydney and attended Sydney University. An ex-Wallaby, he also lived for several years in rural France and Italy, playing rugby for regional clubs. He and his wife Lisa Wilkinson - journalist, magazine editor and television presenter - have three children; they live in Sydney.
