Don’t miss international bestseller Heather Morris, discussing her first non-fiction book Stories of Hope, on Sun 22 Nov.

From a young age Morris discovered that people would tell her their stories if she stopped and listened. In her first Heather explores the art of listening – a skill she employed when she met Lale Sokolov, the Tattooist of Auschwitz. Join Heather for a special conversation with writer, poet and academic Maria Takolander, as she shares the remarkable stories of the people she has met. Book here.
