    • Books

Chaired by Tory Shepherd.

ABC journalist Paul Kennedy and former Sydney Swans player Brandon Jack were forced to challenge and transcend their own expectations, and that of those around them, before they could fi nd and embrace their life’s true calling. In Funkytown, Paul focuses on a critical year of his adolescence that became a turning point. 28 is the number of games Brandon played for the Swans and details the pressure and challenge of failing to succeed. Both are evocative accounts of sport, masculinity and breaking free.
