In late 2013, Australian born and then Al Jazeera journalist, Peter Greste was jailed along with two of his colleagues on allegations of reporting false news in a conspiracy with the Muslim Brotherhood aimed at destabilising Egypt. Peter was subsequently sentenced to seven years in jail but later freed after spending 12 months in an Egyptian prison.

Having endured this life-changing incident, Peter Greste continues to write. Peter Greste will appear as part of the Lord Mayor's Writer in Residence series at the Brisbane Square Library on Thursday 14 June 2018 where he will discuss his latest book, The First Casualty A Memoir from the Front Lines of the Global War on Journalism. Published by Penguin Books in 2017, The First Casualty explores the extent to which modern investigative journalism is under threat and the increasing need for truth in the age of terrorism.

This thought-provoking book has been featured in the Brisbane Libraries Top 40 Book Club Reads.

Bring along a copy of the book or purchase one onsite as Mr Greste will be available to sign copies. This free event starts at 6:00pm and concludes at 7:00pm at the Brisbane City Square Library.
