Author, Journalist, Speaker

Saturday, 9 January 2016 – 6:30pm: Guest Speaker at the Festival Dinner
Sunday, 10 January 2016 – 1:45pm: The Legacy of Sir Donald Bradman

A staunchly independent writer, author and journalist Gideon brings scholarship, flair and intellectual rigour to the varied topics he has written and spoken about. A former journalist with The Age and currently with The Australian, he has also written for leading news houses in England, India, New Zealand and the UAE. His numerous books are widely acclaimed and his cricket works tackle the subject from myriad perspectives. Gideon’s refreshing player biographies include Warwick Armstrong, Jack Iverson and Shane Warne. A Summer Game is widely regarded as one of the best cricket histories ever penned and his dissertation on Kerry Packer’s intervention into the Game, The Cricket War, is another classic.

Together with Mike Coward, Gideon will offer his thoughts on recent developments and influences on cricket (and what Don Bradman may have thought about them) at the Festival Dinner on Saturday 9 January while on Sunday 10 January at 1.45pm he will address the Legacy of Don Bradman in the final of the Bradman Theatre Forums.
