When:6 June 2017, 6pm-8pm, Where: Theatre, Lower Ground 1

In this funny and frighteningly believable satire, Hugh Mackay lays bare the machinations of this multi-million-dollar advertising industry, and leaves you wondering just where the line between parody and reality falls. Hosted by the Australian National University and National Library of Australia, prolific and well-known social reseracher, writer and commentator Hugh Mackay, discusses his latest book Selling the Dream with Alex Sloan.

Hugh Mackay is a social researcher and the author of 17 books, mainly in the field of social analysis. Selling the Dream is his seventh novel. His most recent non-fiction book, Beyond Belief, was published in 2016. He is a fellow of the Australian Psychological Society and, in 2015, was appointed an officer of the Order of Australia.

In association with Pan Macmillan Australia and supported by the Australian National University.
