Helping people help themselves
This edition, we profile South Australian Dignity for Disability MP Kelly Vincent from who – in 2009 at the age of 21 – became the youngest woman ever elected to an Australian parliament. And we catch up with South African athlete Oscar Pistorius, who runs on carbon fibre prosthetic limbs and hopes to qualify for both the Paralympics and the Olympics in London this year. We’ve also managed to work in a Ryan Gosling angle for this cover story – but you’ll have to pick up a copy to find out how!
Also in this issue:
Melissa Cranenburgh talks rocks, paper…and self-help with controversial memoirist Augusten Burroughs; Anthony Morris ponders the marketing tactics behind Alien director Ridley Scott’s new film; the Governor-General joins the gang at the Women’s Subscription Enterprise; and ‘Roving Eye’ takes a peak at the weird and wonderful specimens stored out of public view at the American Museum of Natural History.
