The Wheeler Centre Gala 2019: Crush: George Megalogenis
'He was the first person who looked like an idealised version of the people I grew up with.'
George Megalogenis takes us back to his discovery of Bruce Springsteen, in all his guises.
For our 2019 Gala Night of Storytelling, we invited some of our favourite writers and thinkers to dish about their fictional crush. It may have been a character of page, stage, screen or stereo – or some life-changing, out-of-reach hero of the real world.
George Megalogenis is an author and journalist with three decades' experience in the media. The Australian Moment won the 2013 Prime Minister's Literary Award for Non-fiction and the 2012 Walkley Award for Non-fiction, and formed the basis for his ABC documentary series Making Australia Great.
