Dinner (Oct 14) with Gideon Haigh – all welcome

Gideon Certain Admissions

Gideon Haigh is a star. He can turn his hand to anything as his recent true crime expose shows. Certain Admissions is brilliantly researched and masterfully written.

Sit around the table for an intimate dinner with Gideon as he talks about writing, his passion for research, and this new book.

No doubt there will be some cricket in the conversation as well. I will be asking him how his Yarras side won the premiership last year and what it felt like after so many (9?) previous grand final losses.

He’ll also give some advice on how to select a T-shirt for television.


Date:  7pm, Wednesday, October 14

Where:  Royal Melbourne Hotel, 629 Bourke St, Melbourne.

Cost: $40 for two courses with drinks at standard bar prices

  1. Gideon Haigh says

    The T-shirts choose me.

  2. See you all there…

  3. I’ve drawn wide for this one but still a chance.

  4. Having read Certain Admissions, I am very keen to be in attendance.
    To continue Dips’ theme, I am off scratch, but will be giving it my all to get to the line.

  5. Drawn nicely here. The inside gate giving connections cause for optimism.

    See you all there.
