Hack in a Flak Jacket is a startlingly honest account of experiencing war and terrorism from the frontline by Peter Stefanovic, one of Australia's leading journalists and foreign correspondents. For almost ten years Peter Stefanovic was Channel 9's foreign correspondent in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. During that time he witnessed more than his fair share of death and destruction - all while putting his own personal safety very much in the firing line.
This is his memoir of those experiences - from wars and conflicts in the Middle East, to terrorist attacks in London and Norway through to royal weddings. His time spent covering these world events has opened his eyes to the human condition - and in many ways affected him personally.
Peter Stefanovic was the Europe, Africa, and Middle East correspondent for the Nine Network, from 2008 to 2015. He reported from the scene of major news events around the world for Nine News, the Today Show, and A Current Affair. In 2014 Peter Stefanovic was nominated for a Walkley Award for his coverage of the war in Gaza. He is currently the co-host of Weekend Today.
Peter will be joined in conversation by Jack Waterford AM, former Editor-at-large at The Canberra Times.
Books will be on sale thanks to the University Co-Op bookshop. Signings will take place from 6pm and after the talk.
