 In February, 1988, Bob Carr as NSW Minister for Planning and Environment together with Andre Giraud, Minister of the Government of France, opened the Laperouse Museum which commemorates the expedition of Laperouse and serves to perpetuate and further strengthen the long lasting ties between Australia and France. Since 1988 Bob has demonstrated his ongoing interest and support for the Museum. In his latest book “My Reading Life”, Bob examines the reasons why certain books have captured his attention and provides an outline of the books he perceives to be integral reading. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing following the talk.  All proceeds from “My Reading Life” go to Interplast Aust & NZ, ,a charity that provides medical volunteers to undertake programs of plastic andreconstructive surgery and training in neighbouring Asian Pacific countries. Nibbles and drinks will be provided after the presentation. RSVP essential: Greg Bond, Ph. 9661 5431 / 0418 628730
