Phillipa McGuinness on the year everything changed
Readings St Kilda — 112 Acland St, St Kilda, Victoria, 3182
Join acclaimed non-fiction publisher Phillipa McGuinness for a look at the significant cultural and technical changes that Australia and the world experienced at the turn of a new millennium.
From 9/11, the Tampa tragedy and John Howard’s subsequent refugee policy, to the dotcom bubble burst on the one hand, and the rise of Google and Apple on the other, we are still experiencing the impact of the events of 2001 today. If 2001 were a movie – oh wait, of course it was – its tagline might be ‘The year that changed everything’. And that change is far from over.
